Tutu bodice

BA (Hons) Costume Interpretation. Dutchess satin ballet tutu bodice, featuring HTV iron on decals and hot fix crystals. Removable bones and stretch lycra inserts follow research into practical adaptations for bodice’s design and requirements when moving for a dancer. The garment was drafted on the stand before several fittings to successfully find the best cut for the dancer and the best shape for the design.
