Classical Ballet Tutus "Golden Lime Tutu"

This tutu is constructed in an amazing fabric. It is a metallic silk dupion in a lilac shade, shot with soft lime green, which in some lights can resemble a rich bronze.

The short, stiff plate-shaped tutu skirt starts as black at the knickers, merging into lilac nets at the top. The bodice and edges of the top-skirt are embellished with gold lace and crystal drops which constantly sparkle as the dancer moves.
