Arrived quickly. Just wish the front ribbon was adjustable instead of stationary. Ours needed adjusting. Would order again though.

About

It all began with a sweet little girl.

My store began on somewhat of a whim. I am a mother to two daughters and when my youngest was approaching her first birthday, I wanted her to wear a tutu for her first birthday photographs and party. I shared photographs in my groups on the old site Cafemoms and several mothers wanted to place an order for a tutu for their daughter. Over time, I needed an easy solution to make things easier to accept orders and payment. That is when I found Etsy. I opened my store in 2008 and things picked up fairly quickly. In 2009 I was contacted my a contractor that worked with television shows. She wanted to include my items on The View during a segment about Work at Home Moms. The exposure of the show was a game changer and my hobby soon became a business. Although I have scaled back in recent years so I could enjoy the last few years of my oldest daughter being at home {she graduates High School in May 2016 and will soon head 3 hours away for college}, my business has always been a one woman "show". I handle everything from customer service, production, shipping,ordering and inventory. Each item I make is hand made by myself. I pride myself in being one of the handful of tutu makers that uses tulle that is only manufactured in the United States. Although imported tulle is quite a bit cheaper, it is not treated to be flame retardant which is a huge deal to me when making things small children will be wearing. I always strive to provide a quick turn around time for my customers because as a mother, I have a tendency to be a last minute shopper myself so I know what it is like to need something quickly. For seven years, I have worked at home in my studio and have had the pleasure of getting to know many fantastic customers while being available to my children. Our family is big on dreaming and building something of your own. Not only do I run my own business, but my husband also runs his own business, a deli and bulk food store in a small city nearby my hometown. As you can imagine, two business owners in one household definitely keeps things interesting. We have been able to show our daughters the true image of what hard work looks like.

Hello, my name is Leslie and I want to welcome you to my shop. From a small age, I enjoyed artsy things, painting, crafting, you name it I tried it. Being a busy mother of two girls, 9 years apart in age keeps me on my toes! I found painting was difficult to squeeze in so along came my tutus! I've been making them for years for my daughter and realized how much I enjoyed it.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is to be submitted via paypal or direct checkout before I begin work on each piece.

*Paying by echeck will lengthen the ship date of your order. I do not begin production on orders paid for by echeck until the echeck clears and paypal and Etsy give me the "green" light on the payment. Echecks generally take 3-5 business days to clear so if you can not wait for payment to clear for production and shipment, please select a different method of payment.
Shipping
Your shipping address on Etsy has to be the same as your shipping address listing on PAYPAL. If they do not match up, I can not send your package. If you select paypal as your payment type, your address needs to be a verified address on paypal. If your address is not verified, your order will be canceled and a full refund submitted.

Please make sure you enter your address correctly, I print shipping labels with the exact address that you provide for me and am not liable for packages that are shipped back to me due to incorrect addresses. If your package is returned to sender, you will need to submit payment for postage fees to have the package re sent to the correct address if it was not at the fault of myself.

Sometimes errors are made when entering shipping addresses on Etsy. The USPS alerts me if an address is non deliverable. If this should occur, I will send you a conversation message, along with an email to inquire about any possible errors in the address you listed during checkout. If I do not receive a response about non deliverable addresses within 24 hours -your order will be canceled and refunded as I can not ship to addresses that are non deliverable addresses.

All tutus are shipped in a 12x12x8 USPS Priority mail box, so they will not fit in most mailboxes. If you are concerned about a package being delivered and left when you are not home, please let me know prior to ordering so I can make a note to have the post office hold your package for pickup. Although packages are insured, if they are marked delivered and left at your home/apartment/workplace and some one steals it, the post office will not reimburse you via the insurance.

I ship USPS priority mail to all US addresses including all APO addresses. Please keep in mind that although Priority mail with in the US is estimated at 3-5 business days (which they're usually fantastic about delivering in that time frame), that is simply an estimate and NO shipping time frame is guaranteed other than Express Mail, which is a service I do not use. Shipping time frame to APO addresses will take a little longer, although shipped priority as well, please order early as it generally takes 2-3 weeks for delivery to APO addresses. I do not offer refunds/returns on items that take longer than expected, so I always recommend ordering early to ensure time for delivery, especially during busy Holiday seasons. I have no control over the speed of the USPS



I do not ship to Aramex addresses or similar companies for shipping overseas. Any orders placed with a shipping address for a freight shipping company will be canceled and refunded.

* I do not offer local pick up to protect the privacy of my family

*Trinity's Tutus no longer ships internationally due to the lack of ability to track packages after they leave the US. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Refunds and Exchanges
**Orders can not be changed or canceled after your order is placed as each order is usually started minutes after each order is placed so PLEASE make certain you have the details correct when placing your order. Most orders are made and shipped quickly for the convenience of my customers so if you are uncertain about any colors in a design in my store-PLEASE contact me prior to purchasing, your order can not be changed after you have submitted the order and paid.



Because my items are custom made at the time of ordering and can not be pre-made and stored to have a rotating inventory available, returns and exchanges can not be accepted if the error was not on my part i.e ordering the incorrect size,(my sizing chart can be found in each listing and below in additional information). If I have made a mistake, please don't hesitate to contact me asap and I would be more than happy to accept returns or resolve any issue or refund your money to you that resulted in a mistake on my part.

***I do not offer refunds/returns on items that take longer than expected, so I always recommend ordering early to ensure time for delivery, especially during busy Holiday seasons. I have no control over the speed of the USPS. I typically urge customers to order at least a week and half prior to needing their items to allow time for the USPS to process and delivery their orders.
***


Due to my return policy I urge customers to be sure to read my listing descriptions in FULL prior to ordering and contact me with any questions before you order is placed to avoid any confusion. I do my best to change every item description or notate any changes in a particular design so there are no surprises, so it is important to take the time to read about the custom hand made item you are ordering.

*If you have any questions about colors used in a specific pre-designed tutu please email me at l_labarge2 [!at] yahoo.com before placing your order-I do not list all the colors in each tutu in my listings to protect the color schemes/designs I make.

Please be aware that colors may appear differently on each computer/mobile device depending upon how the monitors/screens are calibrated. Some colors, especially the more neon hues-will photograph very vividly and will be less neon/vibrant in real life. If you would like to see actual tulle samples of each color used in my store to better see the exact shades in each tutu, please email me prior to ordering and I will be happy to email you samples to view.

All tutus in my store are made with equal parts of each color used in the design. Depending on the angle/lighting while being photographed, some colors may appear to stand out more than others in the photographs but each color will have the same amount of depth in the actual tutu as every other color in the design.


Also, if an item is not stated as being included with, including special embellishments, decorated hats, shirts, bloomers ect. I do not carry them. All shirts, hats, bloomers, ect are photo props used by the photographer during a product shoot with each model. Please be sure to read the full listing description so you are fully aware of what you are purchasing.

If a refund was agreed upon, Shipping costs will be non refundable

If I made an error and a return is agreed upon, Items must be returned in their original condition-which means smooshing them in any box and having them arrived in a crumpled ball of tulle won't work.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please check my store announcements for current turn around times. Current turn around time is between 1-4 business days. Most information about ordering, returns, and my products can be found throughout the store announcements and policy section of my store. If you have questions, just about any answer can be found here. Although I love talking to my customers, some weeks I am busier than others and not readily available to promptly answer all questions, so information here is updated often for your convenience.

**Orders can NOT be changed after your order is placed as each order is usually started minutes after each order is placed so PLEASE make certain you have the details correct when placing your order. Most orders are made and shipped quickly for the convenience of my customers so if you are uncertain about any colors in a design in my store-PLEASE contact me prior to purchasing, your order can not be changed after you have submitted the order and paid.

Although I will gladly include a gift note with any order being shipped as a gift, I can not wrap a tutu before shipping and it will be packaged in tissue paper, in a priority mail shipping box.

**Orders can not be changed after sizing information is received be it by conversation or in the notes to seller {whichever comes first} as each order is usually started minutes after each order is placed so PLEASE make certain you have the details correct when placing your order.


* I no longer accept orders for custom colored tutus..what is currently available in my store is the inventory and color selections currently available for ordering. Please do not place an order and request different colors.



All tutus in my store are made with equal parts of each color used in the design. Depending on the angle/lighting while being photographed, some colors may appear to stand out more than others in the photographs but each color will have the same amount of depth in the actual tutu as every other color in the design.


****Sizing information: Please read prior to ordering
ALL tutus are made with an elastic waistband-measurements per size can be found below.
Sizing chart for all items is shown below:
0-3month 15"waist app. 5 inches in length
3-6 month 16” waist app 6 inches in length
6-12 month 17" waist app 7-7.5 inches in length
12-18 month 18" waist app 7-7.5 inches in length
18-24 month 18.5" waist app 8 inches in length

*Each tutu may measure roughly .5-1 inch smaller than the posted measurement above due to the elastic relaxing after the tutu is made. The elastic will stretch to the above measurement and generally, an extra inch or two for some wiggle room while wearing .


Please note on all 18-24 months through toddler lengths, the tulle is longer and heavier than the strands on my infant tutus so the tutu will not stand out as much on the sides and back

Toddlers:
2T 19" waist app 9 inches in length
3 19- 19.5" waist app 9- 10 inches in length
4 20" waist app 11 inches in length
5 20.5" waist app 12 inches in length

If you need a smaller waist but longer length please order the size according to the length that you'd like as prices reflect the amount of tulle used for each tutu and then leave a note during check out with the size waist you'd like. Only the sizes listed above are currently available in my store.


Flower and headband styles and colors may vary based upon availability but will always match your tutu as stated in each listing. If you want a specific item, please send me a conversation message to inquire if that particular style is in stock BEFORE placing your order:) Stock of flower styles and headband styles and colors do vary but each selection will always match your tutu. If there is a flower and or headband you see on a headband in my store that you'd like for your tutu-please inquire BEFORE ordering to make certain I have that flower in stock in the studio so there is no disappointment when your order arrives.

**If you do not want a headband-the price for each item remains the same as stated in each listing. I include my headbands for free with each tutu as a thank you to each customer.

Shirts, hats and other items shown in photographs are props used by myself and photographers I work with and are not available for sale unless the items are listed in my store as being available. Photographs are examples of my work and all items are custom made at the time of ordering. As stated, flower colors/styles are subject to change due to availability during different seasons so if there is something in particular you want-please ask ahead of time to ensure it is in stock.

Please supervise children 3 and under while wearing tutus as some of them contain small parts such as flowers and although my pieces are made to be durable, in the case a child pulls an embellishment off, it can be a choking hazard and I can not be held liable in the event that should happen. Ribbon and flowers may vary based on availability.





Trinity's Tutus specializes in full and fluffy high quality tutus, complete with extra special details and, as a bonus, all of our tutus(minus costumes that state they come with a specific hat) come with a matching headband and flower clip too! Only tulle made in the USA is used in my store-no cheap imported tulle is ever used-why you ask? American Made tulle is treated to be flame retardant whereas imported tulle is not;-) Quality and Safety are important for all of those little princesses out there. All of Trinity's Tutus are made with a non roll elastic waistband that does allow several inches for room to grow.
