What a Tutu

soundstitches sewing blog oregon ballet theatreYou know what you’re working on, and how the hours pile up. Check out this bit of effort — making tutus for the Oregon Ballet Theater’s production of Yuri Possokhov’s Raymonda. (That’s okay, I never heard of it either.) Each tutu, they say, takes 80 hours to construct! My favorites are photos 13 (below) and 17 (on Web site).

What are you working on? I’m off to a sewing retreat soon, so what I’ll be working on is… packing!
