were designed for Watlington School of Dancing's 25th anniversary production
of the ballet "Coppélia".
The mechanical doll
tutu consists of a blue/green metallic organza bodice with intricate appliquéd
decoration and an upper bodice of ruched silk tulle. The top layer
of the tutu skirt is of a contrasting shot organza over a plain white tutu.
The costume was made
to the highest couture/theatrical standards in order to withstand the
rigours of many performances.
