“My Tutu”

Description from Melody F: I had a tutu once. Or at least the short skirt of the fancy costume was tutu like. I was about 10 years old and my mother made the costume, which was a deep green. It must have been for the recital, but my mother pulled me out of ballet before I could perform, so I never wore it for an audience. I remember the teacher was angry that I wasn't going to be in the recital. I`m not sure why this happened. It might have been because of money. I do have a photo of me in the costume, taken in our back yard. Later I started ballet again with another teacher, but that didn't last either. In college I took modern dance, and ballet with a friend (a private class, not for credit). I never became a "real" dancer, and my friend became a lawyer. Ah, life...

    Thanks for sharing your story behind this pick, Melody. Even though it didn’t turn out quite like you expected as a little girl or young lady it seems like you have good memories of the ballet and dancing. Your pick looks just like a beautiful ballerina!

    I can visualize a young ballerina in her frothy pink tutu and a necklace made with elements from this pick! Sorry to hear about you missing your recital that you had worked hard to prepare to perform. It is disappointing when it happens.

    I like your pretty TUTU pick! Sorry about the unexplained dance recital- life seems to be filled with those types of things. Best to surrender those to a “must have been for a Higher Purpose” attitude. I wore a tutu in a recital as a little girl as a (ready?) a Penguin! Yes, I remember the white and black sequin top with big black buttons down the front and matching tutu. Good times, good times…

    This is an adorable pick … albeit based on an unhappy occurrence … thanks for sharing! And congrats!

    I had the pink tutu my mom made me for my 1st grade recital. It was beautiful but I came down with chickenpox so no recital for me. Gorgeous pick- congratulations!!
