Entry Description

A hand-beaded romantic tutu. The silhouette is inspired by the wave of the ocean and 1900s gowns. Since the top part is filled with details, the bottom part keeps the minimum decoration with tying a loose knot in order to maintain a clean shape.

Please go to the seaside when you feel confused.

Material: Nylon blended cotton sateen, polyester tulle, acrylic beads and sequins.
