(¸.•´ What makes a PrincessDoodleBeans Tutu special?!?

With over 100 yards of tulle on even the smallest infant skirt, you can be assured that these Tutus are the Poofiest available! (Even poofier than rivals like Tutu Couture for FAO Schwarz!) The mathematical equation I use ensures you'll get the MAXimum amount of tulle possible on your skirt without destroying the waistband. This leads to the fullness you see in the photos. There is literally a wall off tulle that makes the tutu not see through. You'll never EVER find a skimpy tutu here!!
*It is my personal quest to make the most full tutus around!

3 Little Birds

WELCOME TO MY (healthy?) OBSESSION! To say I'm a bit addicted to what I create would be an understatement of dramatic proportions. Recently, I've even begun creating tutus in my sleep....but let's start at the begining.....

Hello, my name is Kristin. I'm a single mother of 3, musician, worship leader, poet, artist, and fabulous tutu creator. This whole tutu making obsession started over 15 years ago when my oldest daughter asked to have a princess tutu dress made for Halloween. I ended up creating 3 sets, one for each of my daughters, and was so taken with them that I just kept creating....and creating....and creating. After 19 were finished (and my bedroom looked like a shrine to the goddess of tulle) my ex husband asked if I was going to sell them, or what? I think he had a problem with his sanctuary looking so frilly. (Guys!!) I took his idea to heart and started plans to sell these one of a kind tutus to family, community, and then through Etsy (LOVE!) My store name is also inspired by my daughters, my muses if you will. Princess is the oldest and the lover of all things pink, poofy, girlie, and frilly. The middle child is Beans, my superman loving beauty in blue. A tomboy in every sense of the word. And last but NEVER least is Doodles, my red haired fiery ball of emotion. Every creation has to go through their rigorous approval process. If they don't like it, you can bet it won't make it to the store.

But making tutus is more than just a hobby for us girls...it has been the avenue for sustaining our family, allowing me to be a stay at home mother, provide opportunities for my girls to follow their dreams, and weave creativity and joy into the lives of my customers. It has become a way of life for me and a primary part of my identity, so when I was suddenly unable to keep my business open in February of 2020 due to the worsening of my chronic illness, it devastated me to my core. For the past 2 and a half years I have been in and out of hospitals, rehabilitation centers, wheelchairs, mobility devices, and pain clinics....desperate to regain function and my previous way of life. A return to "normalcy" that heavily included PrincessDoodleBeans Boutique. It is with tremendous JOY that we are re-opening and recommitting to creating the BEST and most FABulous custom tutu products on the planet. It is with even greater JOY that we look forward to working with you, our sweet customers, on your SPECIAL orders!

It is my sincere hope that you enjoy each creation as much as I did making it. These creations, like everything else in my life, are a work of art. <3

Welcome to the PrincessDoodleBeans Boutique! Every item is hand created by me and I never skimp on the frill. I guess you could say that all of this just kind of fell into my lap. I am the mother of 3 very unique and wonderful little girls. They are my inspiration, my muses if you will. My oldest, an 20 year old, is the princess of the family....who prefers everything pretty and pink. My monkey in the middle at 18 is Beans...a superman loving beauty in blue. My youngest, a terrific 15 year old, is doodle....with red hair and the fiery personality to match. Every creation has to go through their rigorous approval process. If it doesn't meet their expectations you can be sure it will never be listed in my shop. I hope you enjoy these creations as much as i did making them. Thank you and be blessed,

K. Frank

Payment

Payment is to be submitted via Paypal or direct checkout before I begin work on each piece. If you did not receive a payment INVOICE number from Paypal or Etsy direct checkout-payment was not completed.

*Paying by echeck, money order, or check will lengthen the ship date of your order. I do not begin production on orders paid for by these methods until the echeck, money order, or check clears and paypal and Etsy give me the "green" light on the payment. Echecks generally take 3-5 business days to clear (money orders and checks a little longer) so if you can not wait for payment to clear for production and shipment, please select a different method of payment.

Shipping

UNITED STATES SHIPPING - I ship all United States packages via Priority Mail through U.S.P.S. with delivery confirmation. This ensures that you get your purchase quickly (usually 1-3 business days) and with confirmation that you have received your package as well. I will mail your item once payment is received/verified. If you'd prefer First Class mail, Parcel Post mailing (4-7 days), or Insurance added on, please message me for a price quote to your location.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING - I ship all International packages via Priority Mail through USPS (6-10 business days for shipping time) If you would prefer a quote for Express mail (3-5 business days) or First Class mail (2-3 weeks) please message me for price quotes to your location. International packages may be subject to customs dues depending on your countries procedures. I do my best to ship in a way that minimizes these expenditures, but there is very little I can do to eliminate these costs as customs dues are out of my hands. If you have questions about how much customs dues will by, I recommend contacting your local post. Thank you for your understanding!

For Custom items please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery as I need time to make sure your order is as perfect as possible! Keep this in mind when you purchase your item. If you are in need of an expedited order (anything under the current production time.) There will be a rush order fee of $15 per item.

Additional policies and FAQs

About the Technique! -
All of my tutus are created using a technique that allows for maximum stretch and durability!
My tutus are machine sewn on an elastic waistband. I use 1 inch width elastic to allow between 6-8“ of stretch in each tutu.

About the Fabric! -
I use a bridal quality diamond weave nylon tulle in my tutus, wands, wreaths, poms, and Flora clips. This fabric is soft and durable, not scratchy and bulky like hex netting.

About the Pouf! -
The fullness of my tutus is created by the HUGE amounts of fabric used on each tutu! I use more than 100 yards of fabric on even the smallest infant tutu! This causes the tutu to be fuller on the bottom, and can not be seen through. My mathematical formula allows me to determine exactly how much fabric is needed on each tutu to create consistently poofy tutus! I never skimp on the frill!
Most of my tutu styles are made using the same formula. There are however a few styles that I call my “half-poof” tutus. They use half the tulle as the rest of my tutus and are stated as such and priced accordingly.

About the Stretch! -
The method and products that I use allow for the waistband to stretch about 6-8" to be easily pulled on and off!
My tutus will stretch approximately 6" without distorting the look of the tutu or exposing the waistband, allowing for an average of 3 or more years of growing room!

About the Size! -
To ensure your tutu is as perfect as possible, please provide waist and length measurements (in inches) at time of sale. If you don’t know the exact waist measurement of the recipient, please included the current pant size.

About Customization! -
All of my tutus are completely customizable! Meaning that you, my dear customer, get to choose what colors of tulle and ribbon you’d like, what length you’d prefer, and what style of tulle you want to create the perfect tutu for you! Color choices are included with the listings. If you have a custom color request, please message me for details. I am more than happy to work out any details with you!

About Accessorizing! -
Don’t forget to check out my Accessories & Add-on section of the Boutique for FABulous ways to accentuate your tutu!! http://www.etsy.com/shop/princessdoodlebeans?section_id=6555788

About Embellishing! -
Rhinestones, flowers, glitter, ribbons, and anything else you can imagine can be added to any tutu at an additional cost. Please message me me if you would like to add embellishments!

About Shipping! -
Your tutu will be shipped with care in a box. I use Priority Mail with delivery confirmation through the USPS for all domestic orders unless requested otherwise. You will receive a tracking number upon shipping. Priority Mail is a 2-3 day service, so your order will get to you quickly and safely! International Shipping is available!! Please contact me before sale for a price quote. If you have any questions about shipping, please message me.

About the Sewn Method! -
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the sewn and tied method for tutus? Wonder no more!
Tied tutus have strips of tulle tied around an elastic or ribbon waistband. All PrincessDoodleBeans tutus have strips of tulle sewn around an elastic waistband! Many tied tutus are not very full. The way they are tied creates the look of fullness, but in actuality they are quite thin. Not so with my tutus!!
Another benefit of sewn tutus over tied tutus is the stretch allowance! Because of the lack of fabric on most tied tutus, they will quickly begin to show the elastic or ribbon through the fabric at the waist when stretched out. The tulle strips will also move out of place and the tutu eventually turns into a tangled mess. AHH!
The method and amount of fabric I use on my tutus allows them to stretched up to 6-8" without showing the elastic! And the fabric returns to it's proper place, ensuring you will get many years of use out of your tutu!
However, not all sewn tutus are created equal, either. Many sewn tutus have the fabric sewn directly to the elastic, limiting the amount of stretch and amount of fabric used.

*As you can see, a PrincessDoodleBeans tutu is in a class by itself! More full than most tutus on the market (including Tutu Couture for FAO Schwarz!) Very durable for MANY years of wear, and still priced modestly so everyone can enjoy them!! Here’s to being TuTu FABulous*

*I am now accepting Wholesale orders for your brick and mortar or online boutique. Message me for price/info/requirements.

**Thank you for choosing to support local/handmade goods from a hard working and fun loving mom. Be blessed!**
