turquoise and gold professional quality tutu

Karina fell for the original "Beatrix" silk for her tutu - inevitably calling for gold decoration!

Emerald green version of Beatrix, transferred to a tutu bodice.

Sarah was the first to transfer the basics of "Beatrix" to a tutu - we changed the silk to an emerald green but repeated the gold lacework exactly.

"Beatrix" can be made-to-measure in literally hundreds of colour and fabric variations.

  From £1900 (construction) plus fabric. Please enquire for fabric-variable quotes, and do specify tutu or wedding gown!
Truly "variations on a theme"!
