Burgundy, Purple and French Lace

I bought this beautiful French lace on my travels in Surabaya. I’ve been trying for ages to entice clients to choose it but to no avail. So I thought the time was ripe for a RTW tutu featuring this lace.

The colours are divine and allowed me to push burgundy and royal purple together.

I love the green and gold in these bugle beads. I added a few small crystal AB rhinestones for a bit of sparkle.

The fine metallic silver threads embroidered through the lace is particularly pretty.

The skirt grades down to burgundy from purple with a layer of black glitter tulle on the top layer. There’s a sneaky layer of dark red in  there as well just peaking through the top of the skirt.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
