Attitude Tutus and Stagewear has been making tutus and other dancewear professionally since 2012 for dancers across Australia and internationally.

Dark Blue Tutus

I’ve had a lot of requests this year for steely blue and dark blue velvet tutus. They have all been very dramatic designs for older dancers. This dark blue was teamed with gold venise lace and a champagne skirt. The floating jewels on the skirt add extra drama. I also added a deep decorated lowContinue reading “Dark Blue Tutus”

Green is not a common colour in ballet except for variations like Esmeralda but sometimes a Tinkerbell will sneak through.

Apricot and Ivory

In 2018 I have resolved to make a few more RTW tutus to test new design ideas on the ballet community. This one was a classical colour combination but with a new lace type that my fellow tutu-maker Danielle Legge brought to my attention. It’s a net based trim that has tiny sequins adhered toContinue reading “Apricot and Ivory”

Dusty Rose and French Lace

I love collecting pieces of lycra in unusual colours so that I can offer my clients something a little different from the colours available from retail fabric suppliers. However, that means I can sometimes paint myself into a corner trying to find the right trim. I was just about ready to ring my client andContinue reading “Dusty Rose and French Lace”

Apricot, Ivory and White tutus

My last multiple post will be those enduring colours of the ballet world, white, ivory and apricot. A lovely white tutu with silver venise lace, crystal AB rhinestones and a simple overlay of silver white lace. This design took a lot of to-ing and fro-ing but I think my client and I came up withContinue reading “Apricot, Ivory and White tutus”
