Measuring Your Child
Please measure your child before ordering. To measure waist, use a soft measuring tape. Measure around your child's natural waist. Be sure to measure under clothing for the most accurate measurement. For additonal help, see our Tutu Sizing Below. It is the customer's responsibility to determine the correct size waist measurement. We make all Tutus according to the product options you choose. We are not responsible if the Tutu does not fit you child when our measurments are consistent with the size option you choose.
Tutu Length: Tutu length is measured from the waist to the bottom of the Tutu. Please measure your child from her waist down to the area of leg you would like the Tutu to fall before choosing a length, and consider that the Tutu will be shorter when it is poofy. The size chart below is meant to provide assistance, but it cannot replace an accurate measurement.
AVOID ADDITOINAL COSTS:
Please select your child's Tutu based on an accurate waist measurement, and please select your child's onesie or tee based on her weight as well as chest measurments. We provide accurate sizing charts to assist you, and we custom make your outfit based on the options you choose. Please choose carefully, and ask questions before buying as there are no refunds.
Tutu Waist Size Guide
Do Not Choose a Size or Length based solely on your Child's Age.

Baby Tutu 3-6 Months: This size baby tutu is made to fit a waist size from 12" to 14" ", which fits most babies 3-6 months. The recommended length for this age baby is 6". (See Tutu Lengths Below)
Baby 1-2 Years: Our most popular size Tutu has a waist that begins at 15" and stretches to about 17" and fits most babies 1-2 years old. The recommended length for this age is 8". (See Tutu Lengths Below)
2-3 Years: This size Tutu will fit a child 2-3 years of age with a waist that measures 18" to 20". The recommended length for this Tutu is 10" for an average height 2-3 year old. (See Tutu Lengths Below)

Tutu Length Guide
4" Length: This length would be most appropriate for a newborn baby up to about 3 months of age, as it is very short and fluffy. On a 1 year old, the 4" length would fit more like a ruffle around the waist and not have the fullness of a longer Tutu.
6" Length: This length would be most appropriate for a baby 3-6 months, as it is very short and fluffy. On a 1 year old, the 6" length would show baby's bottom, and would look perfect with a ruffle panty. However, this length of Tutu is not recommended for portraits when a fuller, longer Tutu is desired.
8" Length: This is our most popular length Tutu, and falls just above the knee or at the knee of a 1 year old child. We recommend this length for 1-2 year olds, but the 8" length would also be appropriate for older children when a very short Tutu is preferred. The 8" Tutu is also the most popular length for baby portraits.
10" Length: This length of Tutu will fall just below the knees or mid shin of a 1 year old. This length is recommended for children 3 or over, or when a longer Tutu is preferred for a younger child.
12" Length: This length Tutu is recommended for a child 5-6 years old. On a 1 year old child, it will fall to the ankle or touch the floor. This length is recommended for older children, or younger children of walking age, or when a very long length is desired for a baby portrait.
ELASTIC WAIST TUTU...Our Tutus are sewn just as clothing is sewn, not tied to an elastic band like many lower quality Tutus on the market. Our elastic waist Tutu has soft stretch elastic running through the waist casing, and the elastic is sewn together to close the Tutu. The child would step in and out of this style Tutu. This Tutu also comes with a removable satin bow pin.
A Tutu requires a little special care for longest wear. Tutu's are made of Tulle, a nylon material that dislikes humidity. Tutu's wilt quickly in humidity, so keep in a cool, dry area when not in use, and do not crush. Your closet is perfect. Our Tutus are not flammable, but they will melt, so keep far away from open flames. Tutu's look best for photos when they are full and poofy. Fluff as needed. To fluff, gently pull each individual Tulle layer up towards waistline for maximum poofiness.
Onesie Size Chart
Please do not choose a size based solely on your child's age. Please choose a Onesie or Tee based on your child's weight and length/ height. Our Onesies and Tees tend to run slightly larger than many comparable brands. If your child is on the cusp of 2 sizes, we advise choosing the smaller size, if the item is to be worn immediately.
