Sweet Dreams Review and Giveaway

I have shared my love of babies in tutu's on here before..
I'm not sure what it is.. but I love them!

I cannot wait until Emmaline is a little older and like to dress up,
and can sway while wearing her tutu.. 

Maybe I love them so much, because as a small girl
I LOVED to dress up, I would always wear princess dresses.

My mom let me have some of her old dresses and she would sew them
or add more to them so they would look like I was headed to the ball.

Of course I also paired the dresses with a pair of her heels and 
maybe even some lipstick.

So you can imagine how excited I was to hear that I was having
a girl, I thought about those dress up memories.

Now that E isn't a newborn anymore,
I love dressing her all up
Bows, hats, shoes, and tutus!

We recently got the chance to try out a tutu from Sweet Dreams Tutus.
We picked out the fuschia & black tutu. 
It was a longer style then some of the others that we have
so as she grows it can sway!





This beautiful black and fuschia double layered tutu is hand tied on an elastic waistband, with a decorative bow that can be worn in the front or the back.

Leah {owner/designer} Who was a pleasure to work with suggests boiling a pot of water and waving the tutu over the steam to release any wrinkles, and then hang up. The tutu should not be washed but spot treated if needed. 

Let me tell you a little bit about Sweet Dreams Tutus


I'm from Canada came to the states in 1999 for work and never went home.  I am a RN work full time and have my 4 year Madisyn and my 20 month old Luke.  Stay super busy.  My mom showed me how to make tutu's and they were simple to make so she thought I shoud start posting them so that's how I ended up on etsy and facebook.  When I have a few minutes or some extra money I buy some supplies and pick my colors and go from there. Wear them with rubber boots and a tee and have fun.  I'm also working on matching bows for the tutu's which I use the extra tulle from the tutu and attach a rubber hair band.

Here are a few of the other tutus you can find at Sweet Dreams Etsy Store



All tutus are hand tied, with some embellishment and range in price from $20-$30. Leah is glad to work with you to create a custom tutu as well. All tutus are wrapped in tissue and shipped promptly.
