TUTU SEWING CLASSES IN WOODEND

I have had a wonderful response to the classes I advertised in January. They are pretty much booked out, so I am offering two more classes in December, the weekend of 14/15 December and a midweek class on 17/18th December. Email me at danilegge@me.com for more details, or to register.

Blossom the Fairy tutu

I was recently asked by Energetiks dancewear to make a tutu to be worn by "Blossom the Fairy" at the opening of their new store in Ivanhoe. The opening was last weekend, so I can now post a photo of the tutu.

Tutu making classes in Woodend

I have finally decided on dates to offer classes here. I have a large sewing room that can take four students comfortably. Classes go for two full days, and in that time you should make a tutu and a tiara, and maybe do some decorating. Price is $500 with all materials provided, or $450 if you bring your own net and lycra. DATES January 11/12, January 18/19, January 25/26 (I already have two bookings for this weekend). I will also offer one mid week class, with two places available, once I have confirmed dates with the ladies who have booked the other two spots. I would be happy to do a class in December too, if I have any interest. I live in Woodend, about an hours drive from Melbourne, so anyone from interstate may prefer to attend the Tutus That Dance Seminar in Melbourne in March. I will also be teaching there, and of course there will be classes on offer on traditional tutu making as well. Here are a few photos of what has been achieved by past students in my class.

Tiaras and tutus

Tutu maker, headdress maker, tap costume maker, Ice skating costume maker and Ice dance costume maker

I seem to have been doing lots of different things lately, not just tutus.

Latest tutus and other costumes

I have been really busy with lots of tutus and even a couple of ice skating costumes. I also have three orders for tutus for YAGP and an just about to post a Bayadere costume off to France! Here are some of the things I have recently completed.
