The top fabric is made of stretchy velvet, fully lined. This gives flexibility and allows a full range of movements. All classical ballet tutus consist of 8 panels on bodice. There is one row of hook and two rows of eyes, which are 2cm apart, at the back of bodice, in case yourself or the dancer outgrows the tutu. Straps are in nude color and made with adjustable and non-slip material. Skirt consists of 12 layers of stiff tulle and is skillfully hand tagged and hand pleated. The tulle that we use does not irritate or chafe the skin. This beautiful tutu is embellished with appliqués, trim and beads, which are professionally hand sewn.
