This design is a recreation of a Bolshoi Ballet costume for Kitri. The bodice is made of red silk velvet, the tutu overlay is embroidered net that is embellished with Swarovski crystals and beads. Everything was done in the studio and for the most part by hand. The embroidery is done on a special embroidery machine that is completely freehand. In this photograph the sleeves have been omitted.
