Everyone loves Ciao Bella tutus and costumes! They are custom made out of the finest fabrics and materials and are so easy to dance in. They are also made to last so you don’t have to replace every season.


“You have a great heart and marvelous talent. Thank you for such beauty and delicateness in the tutus you just made for Ophelia, bless you.”

“Several years ago when my regular tutu maker could not take on designing and constructing 12 new Snow bodices, he recommend I try Tami of Ciao Bella Tutus. I did and have completed three more projects with her since; Waltz of the Flower bodices, a fully designed custom classical tutu and a set of corsets and skirts for a contemporary work. I have been pleased with every aspect of the process.
Tami cares about giving her customers not only beautiful designs but also impeccable construction. She can work with a concept or a full realized drawing and produce both equally well. Being from a rural area without any fabric suppliers, Ciao Bella has been instrumental in providing my company with professional costumes at a reasonable cost.
Ballet Yuma dancers are “sew” lucky to be able to wear Ciao Bella tutu designs…Thank you Tami!”
Kathleen Sinclair - Ballet Yuma, Director

“Our Family has had over 7 tutus and many other customs, custom made for us at Ciao Bella Tutus. Every tutu was profesional quality and beautifully made to make your dancer look their very best. Tami researches design as well as embellishments and makes each costume spectacular to look at, as well as completely appropriate for the part and venue. Her tiaras are unmatched, anywhere. We have not seen any that are more beautiful. Tami has an elegant eye and all her work has the look of excellence. Whether for classical ballets, contemporary work, ballet academies, award winning competitions or companies, we have completely trusted Tami’s work. Thank you.”
Jill, Nicole and Christine Rosales

“Dear Tami, Here’s a quote that made me smile and think of you: “From the manner in which a woman draws her thread at every stitch of her needlework, any other woman can surmise her thoughts.”
Honore de Balzac

“I have worked with Tami for last 5 years, she has made numerous costumes on my requests, tutus, tunics, romantic tutus, vests and male jackets. She is very artistic and always open to new ideas and in search for the best results… She is always on time with her orders and offers affordable prices for high quality costumes!”
