About

For the love of dance...

After a decade away from the barre, I rediscovered ballet in my late 20s. Returning to a dance studio after such a long time was daunting and intimidating, and for the best part of a year I hid down the back in yoga pants and oversized tshirts internally loving every moment but also not quite ready to "dance like no-one is watching". As my confidence grew, I found myself yearning to look the part but had difficulty finding dancewear in my size. My solution to this dilemma was to start making dancewear for myself. When my skirt collection exceeded 20 skirts, I soon started dressing my classmates...

Skip forward a few years, and I now create dancewear for tiny tots through to those of us who need a bit more wrap in our wrap skirts. Dance is a universal language, and I am so honoured to dress dancers from all areas of the globe - from complete beginners taking their first plié though to seasoned pros who grace the stage night after night.

I still love my oversized tshirts (Barre Wars: Return of the Jeté is in high rotation!), although these days they get paired with a chiffon wrap skirt and legwarmers. My goal these days isn't to "dance like no-one is watching" but rather to dance like my ballet teacher is standing next to me and giving me a nod of approval.

I have a second Etsy shop where I make retro aprons, pinafores and vintage inspired children's clothing. You can find my other work at www.utopiahandmade.etsy.com
