Blue and Gold Championship Tutu

One of my clients asked me to make a championship tutu for her daughter with just a few colours a no-go and the brief … lovely, layered, textured and romantic.

Here’s my interpretation of her brief …

Bodice decoration

I used a combination of 2 different laces on the bodice and a range of blue rhinestones.

The main applique was white with light gold cording. To bring a textural effect I used bright gold venise lace and some topaz horse-eye navettes.

I used the same applique on the plate with a few touches of venise lace. Between each of these appliques I placed a diamond of blue net edged with soft gold lace with a venise lace applique in the centre.

You can see the effect of the three different gold colours is quite loves and provides depth to the design. Here is picture of both parts of the late together.

I was very happy with the design and the overall effect. I think It has attracted the most likes of any of my posts on FB.
