Sunny - TuTu Time!
Ok, I have lot's of projects in the works (which is what's keeping be from updating my blog) one of which is the making of Hana's birthday tutu!
Yes, you read right, I'm MAKING a tutu for my daughter. I have always been able to sew and make things (see my baby blog for the diaper cake I made) at a decent level, but clothes are a new territory for me. I saw this awesome tutu dress online a few weeks ago and I knew I wanted to have one just like it for my daughters birthday! HOWEVER......they wanted over $80 bucks for theirs....not including shipping! If you have been keeping up with my blog you know I'm in this DIY mode and for the large part refuse to pay for something I can make myself (time allowing of course).
So there you have it...I'm making a tutu halter dress. I plan on making two. The first one I call "T-Beta 1". That's the learn on me dress. It's about 65% done, and once completed, I'll start working on the official party dress. hopefully any kinks that pop up will be worked out on the first beta dress.
Wish me luck!
