I was asked to make a peasant pas dress that resembled that made for Degas’ bronze sculpture the Little Dancer. This bronze has a real dress that is periodically replaced. I made the bodice in a beautiful bronze fabric to recall the sculpture and made the skirt from some soft tulle in ivory and cream that resembles the soft aging skirt so often seen on the sculpture.

I am a costumier living and working in the beautiful volcanic plains of south western Victoria, Australia. I specialise in dance costumes especially classical ballet tutus. From July 2021 I will be focusing chiefly on ready-to-wear costumes although I will take a limited number of commissions per year View all posts by barbarasanders2077
