Having little girls means embracing all thing frilly, pink and glamorous. Dreams of being Princesses, ballerinas and gymnasts is a daily occurrence for my daughter who is almost four. So it is so fun to indulge in costumes and dress up outfits for her dream to become closer to a reality. Nothing is more girly or exquisite then the pink and green tutu by Tutu Terrific. Layers and layers of tulle are perfectly constructed to create a prima ballerina tutu. It stretches just right around my daughter's waist and rides up high sticking out round and round. Beautifully adorned with small embellishments like ribbons and rhinestones make it even more special. My daughter twirled and twirled on her stage at home and insisted on choreographing a special routine. This imaginary play is heightened even more with the help of this tutu. I love the fact that even at this age she realized how special this tutu is and places it carefully in her costume boudoir. You too will see the difference between this and commercially made tutus.

What little girl doesn't love a tutu? For that matter, what mother doesn't love to give her young daughter a beautiful tutu? I for one, do! I was so delighted to learn about the most divine, handmade in the US, tutus at The quality of the craftsmanship is obvious from the minute you take it out of the package. To be honest, you can buy a tutu anywhere, but I promise they will not hold up as well, nor will it look as sweet! Specifically, the Rainbow Sherbert tutu is fabulous. A cloud of pink and green tulle with dainty pink crystals, this item is a must have! Since opening the package my 4 year old has been dancing around the house, loving every second of wearing it!
Tutu Terrific tells us:
Tutu Terrific was started in March 2010 by a grandmother (Nana) of 12. I was laid off in May 2009 at the age of 62 years old and due to the economy, job market and age was not able to find a job. I decided to try something new and with the help of family and friends, opened my on-line business. 

My goal was to produce a high quality product that I would be proud for my grandchildren to wear. 
“All of our tutus are made with loving hands, caring hearts, and just a sprinkle of fairy dust! We hand-make each tutu with special care - as though we were creating them for one of our own family.
The waist band of each tutu is made of non-roll, high quality elastic that will not twist or bend.
We offer 3 waist sizes: Small ( 15-19 inches), Medium (20-24 inches) and Large (25-29 inches). Since the waist band is elastic, it will grow with your child. In addition, we also make matching tutus for dolls and teddy bears! 
Each tutu has 8 layers of soft tulle: 4 layers of matte, and 4 layers of shiny tulle for a very full, fluffy effect. 
Every tutu comes with a color coordinated bow and can also be ordered with a variety of embellishments such as bows, gem stones or flowers.  

Special orders on waist size, tutu length, or color are also available. Please contact us if you have a custom tutu in mind!” 
All of my tutus are handmade to order. My products are featured on several on-line boutiques as well as 2 ‘made in the USA’ web sites. In addition to on-line sales, I participate in several shows per year
