My client wanted a warm coppery gold trim to go with her burgundy tutu. It’s a hard to find colour so I decided to overdye some venise lace. The rayon bobbin thread is a warm yellow so I played around with fuchsia and hot pink fibre reactive dyes until I was happy with the colour. I also used undyed gold lace in the decoration as well and brought the two colours closer together with rhinestones.
I used scarlet and gold resin rhinestones because of their bold colour and augmented them with hyacinth and other red coloured stones.
The skirt was ivory with a layer of enhanced sparkle tulle to give the skirt more glimmer.
The ensemble is completed with a tiara and arm puffs.
