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”

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”

Black and Red Tutus

  Black and red often conjures up Spanish tutus but there is so much more to these colours than just Spanish. A dramatic all black tutu is included in the mix here too … dark Odette. The points on this plate end with floating jewels for extra drama. Dramatic detail on bodice front does suggestContinue reading “Black and Red 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”

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”

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”

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”

Ivory and Gold Championship

Ivory and gold are classic colours for an elegant and sophisticated tutu. Here I’ve used gold venise lace with crystal AB, citrine and topaz rhinestones, and added pearls to lighten the effect of the heavier parts of the gold applique.   My client wanted the tutu to have rich embellishment without being too heavy soContinue reading “Ivory and Gold Championship”

Champagne and Silver

I really like it when colour schemes I wouldn’t have thought of are suggested to me. A client saw a tutu I had made in a warm champagne colour and thought that it would suit silver trim.     I used a combination of light topaz and crystal AB rhinestones to break up the thickerContinue reading “Champagne and Silver”
