We can do the same analysis with romantic tutus... This time let's use pinks and purples for Waltz of the Flowers, Hours (from Coppelia), Don Q dream, and a Masquerade piece.
12 romantic tutus for 4 ballets @ $250. each would total $12,000.
-- OR --
12 multi color, A-line romantic basic tutus @ 190. ea $2,280.
12 overlays for Waltz of the Flowers @ 90. ea 1080.
12 overlays for Hours @ 50. ea 600.
12 overlays for Don Q Dream @ 75. ea 900.
12 Masquerade overlays @ 60. ea 720.
Total = $5,580.
That is a savings of $6,420.!!!
Other benefits of overlays include less storage space needed and removal for ease of cleaning!
