The Schwartz's vs the Tutu

Sarah's 8 month pictures are coming up and I'm scrambling to get outfits put together.  I mean how are we ever going to top flower butt?  Well, after prom I took home the tule they used to decorate the gym with the intent to make Sarah a tutu and today seemed like a good day to give it a try.  I did my google research on no sew tutu's and found one that suggested using an adult elastic headband.  I have plenty of those so I slipped it around her waist.  It seemed a little big, but it should work none the less.  Then I had my genius idea and I stretched it around the back of a kitchen chair and started making the tutu.  Have you already thought that through....yeah, it stretched it out.  So it was too big for Sarah, and too long.
Remember, this was round one so I've got some ideas of what I can do better.  But it was just the right size for...

Oddly enough, we didn't actually get a picture of the person who the tutu actually belongs to:  ET.  But we're thinking about making another one and having the girls wear matching tutus to a Tigers game this fall.

So here's the vote for the pictures.  Should I have Sarah wear a tutu for her 8 month or wait until 12 month pictures.  (Or would it be ok to do it both times as long as the tutus were different colors?)  And if I do a tutu for this round should I do blue or go buy some tule and make a pink one?

  1. My only suggestion, is that you have a boy next. The wardrobe decisions aren't nearly as complicated.
