Swirly, Twirly, and Tutu Girly

Nothing is quite as sweet as a little girl in a tutu. Not just for dancing anymore, they’re fun for Valentine’s Day gifts, photo shoots, birthday parties, or even just wearing over a pair of jeans! Read on to find some fabulous tutus in the greater Seattle area.

Gorgeous Satin-Edged Tutus

Angela Evans, Snohomish mom of three, challenged herself to make the perfect tutu when her first girl (princess Gwen) came along. Hundreds of yards of tulle later, she knew she had created something special when she started getting requests from friends, wedding parties, and dance studios for her made-to-order designs. Her ultra-fancy “Divine Elegance” tutu is edged with a thick rim of satin creating a swirly effect which really pops in photos (pictured at right). The waistband and attached bow are made of matching satin. You can find out more and order them at her downtown Snohomish boutique, Bee Bops and Lollipops.

Personalized Baby Tutu Sets for Holidays

It seems there’s a “baby’s first” bib, t-shirt, or pajama print for just about every holiday out there…why not personalized tutu outfits, too? Seattle-based catalog/web-boutique Chasing Fireflies offers adorable tutu sets (search “tutus” on their site to see them all), complete with a personalized onesie, baby hat, and tutu for Valentine’s Day, St. Patty’s, Halloween, Christmas, or birthdays. The tutu skirts, detailed with hearts, shamrocks, pumpkins, and snowflakes are so darn cute you may find yourself snapping up an outfit for every baby shower on your calendar this year! After all, who needs another pink blanket when you can have a tutu outfit?
