Our daughter first experienced Tutu Pour Mon Deux when she was 3 years old. She was so sad when she outgrew her Boston Red Sox tutu tank. Needless to say, she was thrilled to have a chance to wear another tutu tank by the same Massachusetts-based family owned company. She was even more excited when she found out that she could design the tutu tank herself.
In addition to offering an adorable product and being based in my home state, I love supporting Tutu Pour Mon Deux because this company donates 1/3 (that's HUGE) of its proceeds to Children's Hospital Boston. Visit TutuPourMonDeux.com to read about how the wonderful doctors at Children's Hospital saved one of the precious members of their family. How could I not admire a company who gives back in such a generous way?

If you know a little girl who enjoys fashion design or likes to spend time on FashionPlaytes.com, then she will love creating a tutu shirt or a tutu tank online. The one our 5 year old daughter ended up with looks nothing like the one she started with. She thoroughly enjoyed the design process, especially since the design page is so user-friendly for someone who cannot quite read yet.
As you can see in the photos, these shirts are created by hand, with iron on appliques and sewn on organza tutus with a ribbon trim. Our daughter currently takes a size 5/6. The Size 7 tutu tank is slightly large on her, but that works out great. I am hoping this shirt will fit her for two whole years just like the last one. These tanks are machine washable in cold water (turned inside-out) and do not shrink if they are laid flat to dry.
Too bad our daughter's birthday has already passed because this cupcake tutu tank would be perfect for a birthday girl to wear. She did wear this shirt to school to show it off and received one compliment after another from her girlfriends, teachers, and the other parents.
To see all the fun choices for designing your own tutu shirt or tank, visit www.tutupourmondeux.com. Personally, I love the monkey and the black cat applique. For a limited time, you can receive Free Shipping when you checkout using Code: HEART. If you do end up shopping, I would love to know what you chose for your tutu shirt.
