NYCB Vol. 9 No. 9 - Nutcracker

(9/50) The skirt of the tutu [for Dewdrop] has taken on various lengths over the years, depending on the individual ballerina's physique. For LeClercq [the original Dewdrop], the skirt was a short, spontaneous sprout of tulle reaching to just below the hips and revealing her gorgeous long legs in both front and back."
