So you are looking for a Ballet tutu?
If the tutu is for a little girl doing her first ballet solo or a semi-professional ballerina in need of a championship level ballet tutu, I can help you decide on the style and type which is best suited to your requirements.
A top quality tutu it involves hours and hours of hand sewing which increases the cost but I can also offer alternative constructions techniques which are suitable for most young ballerinas for festivals.
I enjoy the creative aspects of designing tutus within the basic principles and will not copy another tutu makers design. I will work with you to find the right colours and styles to suit, and make sure it fits how you want it. A ballet tutu is made to move and dance in, its not just to look pretty therefore the ballerinas need to feel confident in the tutus outfit to perform their best.
These are specialist tutus finished to a high standard and capable of lasting the adult dancer many years of wear. Or alternatively, can be sold and passed on to other dancers. While the structured bodice classical tutus are expensive, they are designed to fit the professional ballet dancer to allow complete freedom of movement and quick access.
For those younger dancers, stretch lycra ballet tutus are growing very popular. Allowing a bit more growth room and lwith the similar construction techniques it looks similar on stage to a structured tutu with the added benfit to parent of being more affordable.
The custom fitting service for structured tutus is limited to those requesting tutus in the North East of England or those willing to travel for a minimum of one fitting. Stretch lycra ballet tutus can be provided by post. Occasionally, I travel around the North East and can arrange s fitting service in local facilities.
