Blue is a very popular colour for tutus from pale blue, through mid blue, royal blue and dark steely blue. Here is a selection of mid blue tutus.
The air-brushed skirt adds a delicate lightness to the costume.
The gold trim on the plate floats over the airbrushed skirt.
Using the same trim, a different feel is giving by using a light gold lace over the skirt.
These appliques can be aligned in many different ways. This client was after a little swoop in the front but not too rounded.
I repeated the swoop at the back as well. Here you can see the lovely lines of Danielle Legge’s beautiful Aurora pattern.
This royal blue tutu is a copy of a purple tutu I made for this dancer last year. She loved it so much she wanted a reprise. We chose different trim and tweaked a couple of other things but it still had the essence of the previous tutu.
This tutu has a lovely deep back that is kept secure with nude mesh
Corded lace embellished with rhinestones sits just under the embroidered appliques to give a textural depth to the bodice.
Sparkle tulle in layer 2 gives an overall ballet glimmer.
I air-brushed the top layer of glitter net to match the plate and grade down to lilac.
You can see the beautiful hydrangea colours coming through the skirt.
Blue, purple and amethyst stones highlight the silver venise lace
