Final tutu for 2012

I posted this off a week or so ago, but it's the last tutu I will complete this year (although I have started a couple for next year already). White double lycra with white net, lots of metallic gold scrolls and AB and gold jewels and sequins.

My first YAPG tutu! Harliquinade variation.

I was very excited to receive a request from a lady in Phoenix, Arizona, for a tutu for he daughter to wear at The Youth America Grand Prix. She sent me the design and colours and this is how it turned out. I was really happy with the way it looked. Unfortunately I only took a few photos with my phone, not the camera, so I hope I get several of Alexa wearing it!

Girls 10 tutu for sale

And yet another tutu! Double white lycra leotard with stiff white net to the skirt. The overskirt is made of super glittery net, backed with more net for strength and edged with silver sequin braid.I have listed it as a girls 10, but it would fit a larger 8 year old, or a small 12 year old, email for measurements if you need more info.

Girls 6 tutu for sale.

Another of Sharon's tutus. Pale pink double lycra leotard with pale pink net. Under the top net layer is gold glitter tulle, so it sparkles beautifully. It has been decorated with soft gold scalloped braid and motifs with the addition of sequins and diamanties. Matching net and tulle sleeves come with it. $275.

Ready made tutus for sale

I have recently bought several tutus made by my friend Sharon. Some I have totally decorated, others I have only tweaked slightly. They are all brand new. They are less expensive than custom made tutus and I can make matching tiaras for all of them if wanted. The red and black one is a Ladies Medium (about a Ladies 12) double lycra leotard and alternating layers of red and black stiff net. I bought the stunning overskirt fabric on ebay years ago, and have been waiting for the right tutu to put it on. It REALLY sparkles under lights! $350.
This one is turquoise and silver (it looks blue here but it is turquoise) with accents of jade green. The overskirt is only pinned on in these photos, so ignore the pins. It is a girls 14/Ladies small. I can give measurements if wanted.

Tutu sewing classes

All tutu making classes in Woodend are now booked out. I will try to run a few more later in the year IF I can fit them in around all the orders I have. HOWEVER, there are still a few spots available for the Tutus that Dance seminars in Melbourne and Sydney, some classes are full but not yet all of them. Details here http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e6fnp37y87a5cd3a&llr=qfcjqzkab I am off to my final end of year dance concert tonight, and I have been to quite a few! I have seen some wonderful choreography, costumes and dancers, but I think my favourite memory will be the baby bunny who refused to let go of the giant carrot that ALL the baby bunnies were supposed to get to hold and nibble on before passing it on. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
