I needed a site like this. I make costumes for my daughter and they can be very challenging. She’s an adult so the costumes she chooses has the big skirts, corsets, etc. My daughter-in-law loves tutus. So I will be making several outfits w/tutus over the next so many years for my granddaughter.
What did you do for the basic dress?
