In the latter part of the year when the Australian dance season is starting to wind down I make a lot of YAGP costumes. We don’t do a lot of variations here so it’s nice to be asked to make them for “my” American dancers.

I’ve used a pretty pink trim on a pale pink leotard in an asymmetrical pattern across the top of the bodice and down onto the skirt.

The rhinestones are pinks, apricots and topaz. Here you can see the skirt is made from stretch mesh. It is robust and easy to dance in with no static and easy to trim to the correct length with no hemming, which is perfect for remote clients.

The costume is completed with a tiara and arm cuffs.

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.
