Romantic tutus in ballet perfprmance

Julia and I are so appreciative of you and your work. The costumes you have made for us are so wonderful. We are in awe of your talent. Those little girls are so excited about their tutus. They are very lucky that their very first tutus were made by you!

                   Classical Tutus

Our tutus are all made to order with classic European construction for excellent fit and durability. All tutus are custom built just for you. We can work from your sketch or photo, or our design, to make that special one-of-a-kind tutu you have always dreamed about. All tutus are delivered performance-ready. Skirts are tacked and all hooks and eyes sewn. You only have to attach the shoulder elastics to the back of the bodice.
