Default Re: Tutu waistband help..

If you're using a ribbon then you measure it to the waist size you want (ex. 20" waist = 20" ribbon plus extra for bow)

If you're using elastic I usually cut it 2.5-3" shorter than what I want (ex. 20" waist = 17" elastic) because as you put the tulle on it stretches the elastic.
Adorable, handmade tutus, hair accessories and bow ties... and Canadian!
