~AllegrasCloset~ Lavendar Tutu Review & Giveaway!

Welcome everyone to my new blog feature....AllegrasCloset!! We have teamed up to offer a great giveaway that is any little girls dream and will bring joy to your heart!
As a mom of girls, AllegrasCloset quickly caught my eye! Like most little girls, mine love to dress up and be and feel pretty! They love to be princesses, and to spin and dance! So when I see pretty dresses, dress up clothes and princess-like clothing, I just have to check it out! At AllegrasCloset you can find the sweetest tutus for your little girl and get one for her doll or teddy bear to match! You can also find beautiful dresses and skirts that will make any little girl feel special and some adorable two-piece sets, etc! The Heather Bailey Dress would be great for Easter! And my oldest would love the Redondo Skirt!

Trying to come up with a good Birthday party or know someone who is? You will want to see the "Birthday Party Pack" of tutus!
This would make an excellent party idea for us, since we know a lot of little girls and they would absolutely Love this! We received a lavender tutu from AllegrasCloset yesterday and my girls were beside themselves with surprise and excitement! It was so wonderful to see their faces and since then, watch them twirl and play! I love how the tutu is one-size that fits ages 6 months to 6 years, so that it fits both my girls and it is very easy to put on and take off.
Meet Our Featured Etsy store and Owner!
Here is what Laurel shared with us about her and her store, AllegrasCloset:

What inspired the name of your Etsy store?
My daughter's name is Allegra, and when I started making clothes it was exclusively for her. So when I needed a "name" for myself, I thought Allegra' Closet fit well.

What insipred you to open your Etsy store?
Before I opened my Etsy store I was really enjoying myself doing craft shows. I loved talking to other crafters, and getting encouragement and feedback and ideas from them. I really wanted to expand and do more shows, but with three children and a part time job, I really couldn't fit anything else into my schedule. When I heard about Etsy I was thrilled to have an online outlet for my creativity. (And another reason to need to buy fabric :)

Would you like to share a little bit about yourself?

I was born and raised in sunny Santa Barbara, CA. I grew up in a very creative atmosphere. My Mom was a seamstress and my Dad an engineer and they always encouraged me to make things rather than buy them. My ballet teacher always used to let up help with the costumes for our performances, and before long I was spending all my free time creating something or another. After high school I moved to Indiana to go to Butler University for Dance Pedagogy. There I was able to help out in the costume shops, learn more sewing techniques,and work with more lovely fabric. I also met my husband Nate while we were at Butler. We were married in 2003, and Allegra came along about a year later. I guess you could say she redirected my sewing and creative habits.

Anything else you would like to share with us?

God has really blessed me in the past few years. We have been so lucky as to have 3 healthy children and another on the way, we have a wonderful church; Calvary Tabernacle in Indianapolis, and a great creative outlet on Etsy. I hope that all your readers will become familiar with Etsy, even if they don't find what they're looking for in Allegra's Closet, let's all try to support the handmade movement!
