so tutu-lly excited!

I'm diving into the world of tulle and tutus today LOL! Special request from a friend so I'll be making my first birthday tutu & onesie set. If it goes well and seems easy enough maybe it'll become a regular item in the etsy shop!

Here's the finished product! Can't wait to get the pics from Jacqui to see her lil' girl wearing it:

hemming the short length

Partially because it's hard to measure them on yourself, partially because I'm afraid of screwing up and wasting a pricey pair of pants. Well, I finally took the plunge and I think they turned out pretty ok.... They seem a little short, but they're a very wide legged pant so I might be fooled by the "airyness" I'm feeling....

In the meantime here's a fun site I've found:
