Because every girl needs a tutu:)

My sister is getting married in October and Sophia is in the wedding. From the start of planning, I've said that I want Sophie to wear a tutu. I started searching on Etsy and would have purchased on there, but then I realized how easy it is to do it yourself. Here is a pic of my first attempt.
The one thing I would do different is make the tulle pieces longer. It's a bit short, but then she doesn't really stand so that's not a big deal. I think I am going to add to this one, but adding more (longer) strips and intersperse them with the shorter ones.
The real question is what will she wear on top? Most of the tutus sold on Etsy are just the tutu and a head band. I thought about a leotard, but can't find any that snap for easy diaper changes. I wanted something a bit more dressy than a onsie, though. Still searching if anyone has any ideas!!

You could us a onsie and embellish it with iron on transfers or lace appliques. Not sure what color onsie yu are looking for, but hobby lobby has black ones. They are inexpensive. Very cute tutu by the way!
