Importance of a Well Designed and Fitted Classical Tutu

Have you ever thought what goes into making a classical ballet tutu?

Traditional Classical Tutu in Cream and Gold Lace  -very simple design but looked amazing on stage

Next time you are at a competition/eisteddfod take note of the tutus that stand out on stage. It is not only the decoration but is the way the tutu fits the dancer.  Decoration can be amazing but if the tutu sits up at the back,  does not fit snuggly to the body and the net flies up in the dancers face, the tutu is not doing its job in highlighting the dancers physique and ability. Sometimes the simplest tutus can draw the most attention. A  plain tutu with minimal lace can achieve the perfect picture of a graceful and elegant ballerina. So when choosing a tutu maker ensure they have the experience and expertise to guide you to making that perfect tutu.
