Classical Ballet Tutus "Pink/Silver Tutu"

Pink classical ballet tutu with silver decoration Detail of silver decoration on pink tutu

A pink and silver tutu designed to order for UK competitions. The bodice was a pink silk dupion; the skirt was not decorated due to the tiny physique of the young dancer.

The bodice was decorated with silver appliqué-work and highlighted with sequins, pearls and crystals which constantly sparkle as the dancer moves.

The short, stiff plate-shaped tutu skirt starts as white at the knickers, alternating white and pink nets for interest.

The skirt was cut with points on the edge of the net rather than the more typical scallops. (Traditionally, pointed net edges are for birds - e.g.swans, Bluebird; scallops for princess roles etc.) This costume can be reproduced exactly as shown in many colour variations.
