Two Ivory Tutus

This year I have put aside a little time to make some ready-to-wear tutus. I’ve made a few dramatic ones but also a few that appeal to quieter tastes. And for that you can’t go past ivory. Here are 2 tutus that both sold in under 30 minutes on my FB page.

This first one is made from Danielle Legge’s beautiful Aurora tutu pattern. Please have a look at her FB page Tutus By Dani to see some of her inspired work.

The back detail is lovely on this pattern.

The appliques on this tutu are made up from tiny opalescent sequins bordered with gold.

I’ve used pale pink and light topaz stones as embellishment.

I’ve left a little of the net background fabric so I could suspend some rhinestones on it.

In this close up you can see the pink blush on the sequins and even a little pale green … I love seeing colour wheel opposites so comfortable together.

It’s one of my favourite trims.

The next tutu is decorated with corded gold lace. It’s a great standby for classical appeal.

The skirt alternates ivory and white layers.

The corded lace is light but with a lovely warm golden glow.

A little detail on the back finishes the tutu nicely.

  2. Hi, any chance we can have an ivory tutu by early June for my 14 year old dancer? If it helps we could just have the tutu without any trimming/ embellishment? I can sew trimmings. Thank you, Susie
