After speaking with Ella’s mom about her vision for Ella’s tutu, I knew exactly where to start. I googled a few photos of peacocks, to ensure coloring was precise, and remembered that a few months back I saw a peacock tutu on Pinterest, I got to researching and discovered this peacock tutu tutorial. I didn’t follow her instructions exactly, but adjusted them work for our design.
Soon Lily and I got our wheels turning and hightailed it over to the fabric store for supplies to design a peacock tutu.
Miss Ella’s Peacock Tutu is designed using tiers of dark navy blue tulle with scattered colors of dark purple, hunter green, and fuschia.
To add a feeling of airy, flying feathers, this tutu was cut shorter and with a ragged edge.
For a hint of Lily & Frog flair… I designed and stitched feathers made of felt.
These ‘feathers’ were designed using colors corresponding to Ella’s tutu.
An added bonus, the feathers are ‘snapped’ onto the waistband of her tutu, not stitched into place to help with laundering and just-in-case Ella’s mom would like to remove them.
Miss Ella’s Peacock Tutu is accompanied by an accenting hair accessory. The hair accessory uses the same tulle from the tutu in dark purple and fuschia, is accented with felt buttons in the same colors and adorned with a little shimmer in the form of clear stones.
Each Lily & Frog tutu is custom-made, so no two tutus are ever the same. I will be happy to discuss with you a tutu which works best for your little prima ballerina while maintaining a classic pattern with a wholesome and delicate design, finished off with a sprinkle of Lily & Frog flair!
Tutus are available in a variety of sizes (size 6 months to toddler sizes), assortment of colors, coordinated hair accessories are NOT included. Starting price for a custom designed tutu is $40.00 and may vary slightly from there.
