Poll: How much might a tutu for a Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty cost?
2 July 2000

Well enquires have been made of two ballet companies and the cost of a good tutu for an Aurora is £600-£800. That assumes its special but not over-the-top: obviously you can be really silly if you want.

So the majority of people got it right... and I was wildly out: I thought they must be £2,000+

As it happens I do actually have two tutus - one of Ravenna Tucker's (Rose Adagio) and one of Miyako Yoshida's (from Swan Lake). If you have never seen a tutu close too I can tell you that they are amazingly complex beasts and how anybody can make them for the money defeats me...
