Lyrical Costumes

This costume was inspired by some gold and champagne lace I bought last year. I teamed it with cream bodice and skirt and made the yoke of the bodice from sequinned stretch lace to make a pretty ready-to-wear costume. I really enjoy making these costumes and they usually don’t languish for too long on the virtual “shop-floor”. There’s always a dance mum who has an eisteddfod sprung on her at the last minute or a dancing daughter who grows overnight!

The costume has a lovely deep back edged with the lace.

The lace was embellished with champagne and topaz rhinestones.

Another RTW costume was this pretty Juliet style dress.

The double stretch mesh skirt provides a fairly opaque look but is still light and floaty.

The bodice is decorated with light gold navettes and crystal AB rhinestones.

I added sleeves to it on request from the buyer to make it more like the costume the dancer had grown out of.

The final lyrical costume had to double as a Statue of Diana and also a danceable lyrical.DSC_0289

The ruched tunic is attached to a white leotard and secured with the white belt.

A separate long underskirt can be added for lounging around Athens!

And just a few light gold details.
