Don’t you just love the simplicity of this newspaper ballerina costume? The tutu is by far my favorite part, and I think that the corset-style back makes it extra special.
This would be even cuter in a kid’s size, don’t you think? It’s a little bit hard to tell here, but if you check out the full sized photo on Flickr, you can see that the top is not made from pieces of paper, but rather strips of paper put together papier mache style. There don’t seem to be any grommets in the holes on the corset, and it looks like the tutu is not attached to the bodice. Does anyone have other insights on how you could construct a piece like this?
