Default Re: Can anyone help with tutu sizes? I really messed up my first one.

I make my elastics about 3 inches shorter than the length I want. So, 16" waist = 13" elastic. As you add the tulle on it stretches the elastic out. It can be very confusing at first because so many people say to add inches (I don't get it).

Also, when I do my tutus, i stretch the elastic around something that would be the same size as the waist. I have various things around the house, like, a lid that is perfect for an 18" waist tutu, or a smaller lid for a 16" tutu. That way it isn't stretched out more than I need and it's easier for me to spread the tulle around evenly.
Adorable, handmade tutus, hair accessories and bow ties... and Canadian!
