I Made a Tutu! (And so can YOU)
Mr. Halsey has a lovely costume shop on the far north side of Chicago. He is quite busy, having contracts with several major ballet companies both in Chicago and around the country. He has a vast knowledge of tutu making and shares it openly and with joy. I was joined by two ladies who are dance mothers that have been making costumes for their daughters' dance schools. He treated them with equal respect as me and the three of us had so much fun over our three days.
|This is my tutu! A little ragged from the journey (and getting lost by the airline!) but pretty darn good for a first tutu!|
Coming soon! I'm going to make 3 bodices using the different techniques I've learned over the years to compare strengths and weaknesses. Well, maybe not so soon. But it's on my list of fun things to experiment with!
