Blue Roses

Here is a pretty little tutu in a soft delicate blue for a young dancer with just a few blue roses for a very soft romantic look.

The plate was just little bit fancy with a second tier and a few more roses and some tiny blue dianthus flowers. The net petals were made of slightly darker net than the skirt to give them just a little bit of definition. The AB crystals flashed a little pink for some colour depth.

The tutu was made for a young girl with a lovely warm complexion and the pale colours looked so good on her. I also loved the tiny patches of sage green from the leaves on the ribbon flowers.

And I made a sweet little tiara to match, with rhinestones and flowers. I’ve added crinoline to the frame of the tiara to make it easier to pin to the hair.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
