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.
I’ve done quite a few of these spikey plates this year. I really like the look.
The plate is made up of 2 very different laces but the overall effect is wonderfully rich.
A layer of sparkle tulle completes the skirt and a lovely decorated low back adds a bit of pizazz.
This tutu uses the same trim as the tutu above but some clever rearranging by my client brought forth this rather lovely plate design.
The gold foiled soft tulle overlay give a perfect delicate touch to the plate.
The decorated low back is lovely.
This versatile lace can be used so many ways. Here is the Silver and white version on a deep navy tutu with a sparkly blue and black skirt.
Blue navettes and crystal AB rhinestones add to the sparkle.
The dancer wearing this tutu is very slender so we worked on getting this heavy trim as narrow as possible. Narrow bodice design for the slender dancer.
I’ve had this French lace for years and I could never manage to have client’s see its potential so I made up this RTW. It sold within an hour!
I added a few crystal AB and hyacinth rhinestones to fill out the filigree parts of the lace.
Floating rhinestones and enhanced glitter tulle gave this tutu the finishing touches.
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.
