I am not a seamstress or a fashion designer. I am an ever grateful Mother of two beautiful daughters with a heartfelt desire to give back to those who have helped our family, namely Children’s Hospital Boston. So how did I wind up designing and selling children’s apparel? It all started with one daughter who is consumed with dress-up and dramatic play, and one little daughter born with a congenital heart defect. Four days after she was born our daughter Maeley was placed in the surgical care of Dr. Sitaram Emani who would successfully repair her heart. Following the surgery and during the stay at Children’s Hospital Boston, a profound sense of gratitude began to envelop me. I began by thanking Dr. Emani personally, and I was completely inspired by his remark. He responded to my gratitude by saying “it was his privilege to be able to do this work”. In that moment, I knew I needed to offer more. I was simply unsure how. The answer to “how can I give back?” came to me months after Maeley’s surgery. One day my daughter Alarice asked if I could sew her pink tutu to her pink shirt. I was happy to, and made one for my niece as well. The girls just loved them. Tutu Pour Mon Deux was born. With every tutu sold, Tutu Pour Mon Deux has pledged to donate one-third of the proceeds to Children’s Hospital Boston.
We've combined a band of organza and colorful ribbon and attached it to the bottom of either a sleeveless or long sleeved shirt with a unique image ironed onto the bodice - creating a one of a kind, little girl's tutu shirt. Our tutu's come in an array of eye-catching colors with prices ranging from $34 - $38 and come in sizes ranging from 18 months to 6T.
