Unusual project from the archives, one for which a script did not even exist prior to the costumes being built.

Jen built the combat tutus purely as an art-for-art's-sake collection (a rare occurrence), then produced a performance with choreographer extraordinaire, Julie McDaniel who directed a lovely group of dancers in 2007.

Fun fact for those who may not know: A 'tutu' is not a frilly skirt. A tutu is a two-piece garment that combines a fitted bodice with a frilled brief. Both are usually held together with hooks and are sometimes even sewn together.

The clever "Jewelry Massacres" are by artist Justina Parsons-Bernstein, who designed each to accompany a specific tutu.

The tutus and jewelry massacre ensembles have been presented in several gallery exhibits and are now part of the McGrews' Permanent Collection.  We can make one just for you from whatever camo fabric or other fabric you wish. We can also make you a skirt instead of a tutu bottom with a frilled brief. Give us a call at 801-596-2210.
