First tutus for 2011

I seem to have had a run lately on tutus for 10 year olds...or tutus that fit size 10 girls. I have just finished two and have a couple more on the go. I am also making a tutu for a girl in Canada, my first international tutu!! and am nearly finished a spectacular Firebird.

This tutu is for Ellah, who chose the colour and design herself. She was very easy to work with as she knew what she wanted and made decisions quickly. She hasn't picked it up yet, so I hope she is as pleased with it as I am.


This one is for Nichola, I painted and dyed the lace on the skirt as I couldn't find anything to match this lovely royal blue velvet.

I also made this headdress to match

More photos to follow soon.
