La Petite Ballerina

From the Arts Fest today

That is one of the Swan's tutus from the upcoming production of Swan Lake--the same one used in this picture:

Some trivia about that costume: 
It takes 100 hours to stitch that tutu, by hand. Each fold is individually folded and stitched into place, along with the embroidered strips and the beading/feathering on the bodice. 
The closures are hook and eye. 
So, you know you want t see these in action October 16-18! Tickets go on sale in August!
