It was a change to be asked to create a Spanish style tutu. Historically these tend to use black, red and gold trim colours and lace. This tutu skirt was made with 10 layers of net which was a mixture of hard English tutu net and soft Italian net. The black bengaline classical bodice was trimmed with gold applique was accented with gold and red acrylic gemstones and lots of swarovski red rhinestones to add the sparkle to the skirt.
I was thrilled to hear this lovely young dancer was placed first for her ballet in the local festival.
