Non-stretch, traditional tutus.

I have made a few traditional tutus, so have just added a few photos to the gallery - scroll past all the posts -but I feel like I still have LOTS to learn here. They are fun to do as you can use any sort of fabric, but hard to sew together...as for sewing on hooks and eyes, not my favourite occupation!

Black and silver tutu



Just finished this one yesterday. It is for a fifteen year old and done totally by email. She wanted black and dark blue with silver. Bodice is doubled lycra on panels with short lycra overskirt. Lace motifs were spray painted and handpainted silver and the bodice decorated with Swarovski crystals in "comet argent" and "black Diamond" plus a sprinkling of navy sequins. The top layer of the tutu is a very glittery black on black net, I think it will look fabulous under stage lights.It has eight layers of net, four black and four navy blue.

New purple tutu

I have just finished a new purple velvet tutu for a ten year old,


It was a joy to make as everything I tried worked first time and came out looking how I wanted it - this does not always happen.
