Gorgeous tutus from Tutu du Monde

Tutu du Monde tutus
Let’s talk about tutus, shall we? Santa Claus brought new tutus for the girls this year and now it’s an all-consuming topic in our house these days. Marlow nearly had a meltdown a few days ago when I explained that she could not wear her sparkly new tutu out into the muddy garden! She has hardly taken it off since Christmas.

We’ve written about Tutu du Monde before (here), but I just thought it was worth mentioning the amazing quality as well as their beauty. I did a little clear-out/organisation of their dress-up trunk after Christmas and realised that so many of the other dress-up dresses or tutus are torn or broken, but not the ones from Tutu du Monde — they’re all still in pristine condition, despite being worn and played with for years and years. (Marlow still wears Ivy’s first tutu from 4 years ago!) The tutus from Tutu du Monde might look gorgeously delicate and detailed, but they are as sturdy and hard-wearing as they are pretty.

Below are a couple photos of Ivy on Christmas day. The sweet girl — all she wanted for Christmas was a pair of tap shoes so you can imagine her delight when Santa gave her a ‘tap dancing tutu’ as well. The sweetest!

So pretty 🙂 Which one did you choose for Marlow? My baby turns one in May an I was thinking of getting her one but maybe I should wait until next year so she can really appreciate it?

There is a separate post about the socks, just scroll down.

These tutus are beautiful, lucky girls.

Hmm, perhaps something to cover Ivy’s underwear would have been more appropriate?

Anika,
It’s not underwear you see, it’s part of the tutu. It’s a onesie style tutu which goes over your underwear. She’s well covered. 🙂

I love the way she asked for so little from Santa and was so happy with her gifts my eldest asked for a tonne of stuff, most of which she got and she still wasn’t happy, Ivy reminds me of my younger daughter, sweet, content and easily pleased,

I’m looking for something similar to hang the pretty dress-up clothes of my girls on. May I ask where you’ve got yours? Love the tutu’s!

My daughter has the same Tutu as Ivy and while it is beautiful I was disappointed that it is fraying at the seams down the front. She only wears it once a week to ballet class and doesn’t play in it so I was surprised it is falling apart already : (
