Such pretty Coloured lace trims just arrived. It makes a difference to the Gold and Silver normal ones.
Used on a child’s Tutu it seems more appropriate than bright Gold, although they all have their place.
Pale Pink and Rose Pink Appliques in corded and sequinned floral motifs.
A pretty corded, beaded and sequinned Trim with a scallop comes in Pale Pink, Rose Pink, Royal Blue,
Dark Red and Turquoise Blue.
Also the standard Silver and Gold.
I was very privileged to recently make the Tiniest Tutu for a very special little girl.
Pinks and Lilacs and silver sparkles are very muted and soft so as to not overpower her tiny frame.
The differences between an Adult Tutu and a small child are quite challenging.
The body shape of a young child and the muscle development at that age are very different and affect how the Tutu is constructed.
I dyed Silk Duchess satin and Silk Brocade for the Bodice.
Silver Silk Dupion piping enhances the silver embroidered
motifs with the dyed pink lace.
Plenty of small Swarovski crystals dotted around the skirt and a couple of larger stones on the bodice catch the light.
The Skirt had Italian net softly pleated with an overlay of Silver sparkle Tulle. A simple plate with Lilac embroidered net and a dyed pink motif completed it.
More Beautiful Trims from a top Japanese manufacturer.
These are very different and Unusual trims but extremely good quality.
The metallic thread and the embroidery is very fine.
The workmanship especially on the larger trims is very good.
Again the different colour gold metallic threads depends how much base thread is used.
The old gold colour is a more solid metallic thread where the brighter gold on some has a Lurex thread in.
Some trims I have only ordered small quantities to try.
The Old Gold Metallic Trim is available in Motifs or by the metre.
The Gold corded and Embroidered scalloped Trim is very effective on a Tutu Skirt.
I recently saw the Black Trim decorating a wedding cake base-unusual application of the trims.
The price reflects the quality and as much as I work hard to try and keep my prices affordable,
with these good quality and unusual Trims the prices are unfortunately higher than normal.
Hopefully with lots of interest I can order bigger quantities and so bring the price down.
Closed Bank Holiday until 30th May. Please get orders in before Thursday if needed. Thankyou Dismiss
