    Calling all parents of ballerinas and princesses! You’re sure to get a heartfelt thank you (and maybe even a curtsey) if you design one of these tutu shirts for your daughter.

A star is born. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!) Bonus: One-third of the proceeds goes to Children’s Hospital Boston. 18M to 6T; $34-38 at tutupourmondeux.com
