The labour of Art for 2 weeks work.
This is the second time I have produced a Tutu; the first was for an A-level project and now this one for a paying costumer. It was a bit nerve racking at the start but I am so happy with the outcome. Yes my sewing machine couldn’t take the 10 layers of double-pleated netting, (Cut down to 9 – close enough) so it’s not classed as traditional, but hey ho, who’s gonna know. With my lack of experience, home-made drafted patterns and a needle eating sewing machine (2 packs of needles gone man!!) I produced something worthy of being presented on the stage!
Now my creativity is following and my inspiration comes from out of the blue. I hope this sweet girl was proud of her tutu and ‘Danced like no-one’s watching!’
(My apologies for the rubbish photos, I dont have a camera!!)
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
