Perform with Attitude

Attitude Tutus and Stagewear has been making tutus and other dancewear professionally since 2012 for dancers across Australia and internationally. My tutus have appeared in all major dance competitions across the world and in most of Australia’s local eisteddfods. I trained under Danielle Legge and Suzanne Dieckmann and owe them both a debt of gratitudeContinue reading “Perform with Attitude”

Two Ivory Tutus

This year I have put aside a little time to make some ready-to-wear tutus. I’ve made a few dramatic ones but also a few that appeal to quieter tastes. And for that you can’t go past ivory. Here are 2 tutus that both sold in under 30 minutes on my FB page. This first oneContinue reading “Two Ivory Tutus”

Green, Mint and Teal Tutus

Green is not a common colour in ballet except for variations like Esmeralda but sometimes a Tinkerbell will sneak through. Beautiful dark green velvet, dramatic light gold appliques and a soft gold tulle overskirt are teamed with emerald and turquoise rhinestones. This lovely little tutu has a light soft design of pale blue and mintContinue reading “Green, Mint and Teal Tutus”

Pale Blue Tutus

Pale blue tutus are beautifully ethereal. Here are a few bluebirds and other pale blue tutus I’ve made this year. This pretty tutu teamed pale blue, ivory and light gold. The top layer of the skirt is fine gold sparkle tulle. This versatile trim makes a lovely plate Here, light blue is teamed with silverContinue reading “Pale Blue Tutus”

A selection of Blue Tutus

Blue is a very popular colour for tutus from pale blue, through mid blue, royal blue and dark steely blue. Here is a selection of mid blue tutus. The air-brushed skirt adds a delicate lightness to the costume. The gold trim on the plate floats over the airbrushed skirt.   Using the same trim, aContinue reading “A selection of Blue Tutus”

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”

Blue and Gold Championship Tutu

One of my clients asked me to make a championship tutu for her daughter with just a few colours a no-go and the brief … lovely, layered, textured and romantic. Here’s my interpretation of her brief …   I used a combination of 2 different laces on the bodice and a range of blue rhinestones.Continue reading “Blue and Gold Championship Tutu”

Lilac Fairy

This is one of my most requested colour schemes/variations. Lilac comes in quite a few shades and this one was on the deeper end of the spectrum with the addition of a ruched corselet bodice.   The top if the bodice is ruched with hand-dyed stretch mesh made to look like a little chemise aboveContinue reading “Lilac Fairy”

Ivory and Cream Tutu

I bought a cream coloured lace recently that had no bling whatsoever on it but the pattern was very attractive and I thought I’d be able to improve its stage-presence with a few (ahem) rhinestones to it to make it shine. I also used a very sparkly gold glitter tulle in the skirt … youContinue reading “Ivory and Cream Tutu”

Silver and Old Gold

I like to buy lots of different trims for my inventory so my clients have plenty of choice. One trim I bought online recently was quite an old gold colour with greenish undertones. I really wasn’t sure anyone would really like it so I thought I’d try it out first as a ready to wearContinue reading “Silver and Old Gold”
