Default Re: Share a tip! (a feel good thread!) :)

New member nekoda recently shared her tips for making tutu waistbands:

Ive usually ask my custom order customers the waist size, subtract two inches but do NOT sew ends until I am done JUST to be sure. I also do not tie the knots tightly on the elastic (it takes away the integrity of the elastic) but leave them to where I can slide a pinky under the knot. I always, regardless of size, safety pin my elastic around a new roll of paper towels, do my tutu ty'in, then adjust the length of the waist accordingly. This leaves me a nice flush backing and I can easily measure my progress and the length.

Thanks for sharing nekoda!
