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 low back
I used sapphire and bronze stones throughout and added a layer of soft gold sparkle tulle to the top of the skirt.
Adding silver trim gives quite a different feel to the same coloured velvet.
This is a beautiful lace that can be used in many ways. Blue stones are offset with crystal AB stones that give a lovely pink cast for a bit of contrast.
Silver venise lace has been used here for a slightly heavier style of decoration than the silver and blue tutu above. A lace overskirt adds a romantic touch. The arm drapes are finished with the same lace as the petals on the plate.
Predominantly blue stones are used here.
Light gold baroque style trim is used here in conjunction with gold glitter appliques.
The two trims work quite nicely together even though they are so different.
Another combination of corded appliques and glitter sequin appliques. The two work very well together and are brought into unison with the added rhinestones.
I really love this combination and look forward to using these trims together again.
A lovely ombre finish to the skirt adds a special touch
Puffs with venise lace complete the picture.
And the skirt grades down to a blue underskirt.
