Let’s start from the beginning. You would like a bespoke tutu making? Then you’ve come to the right place. My name is Sheryl Reed and I have a background of over Thirty years in theatrical costume making and in the last fifteen years I’ve concentrated on creating classical tutus, attending courses run by Suzanne Dieckmann who’s designed and created Tutus for major ballet companies.
A quality bespoke fitted Tutu involves hours and hours of hand sewing which invariably affects the cost. I also offer a cheaper stretch version for those with a tight budget with prices starting from £160.00.
I offer in the price of a Tutu:
- A Consultation – to decide on what style, colour and materials you would like and at this consultation if you then want to go ahead I will take measurements and fit a Toile and also I will then ask for a £50 deposit from you.
- First fitting which is of the bodice and basque
- Second fitting which is the final fitting at collection of it complete and I ask for the remaining balance of money.
There’s a small amount of growing room built in to all my Tutus and I will alter these for a nominal price in the future to either fit the original dancer who’s grown or the dancer it has been passed down to. Hoops can also be added to any of my tutus at a later date (£25) as I incorporate a hooping case within the middle layer of all my tutus.
