I’ve been watching the ballerina costumes closely lately, since the release of the movie Black Swan, the intricate work simply blows my mind, I’ve come across an amazing video that shows some of the details that are used in making classic tutus for the New York ballet…
This is definitely my next challange, remaking a tutu. I believe I could make something a little more stable, without all the straps, a ballerina generally doesn’t have a chest, but I think a curve at the top would give the garment a little more grip. Experimentation, experimentation, experimentation
I’m thinking tight floor length dresses with a tulle skirt over it, or a stiff short dress covered in white tulle.
Let’s see how this works out. Watch closely.
