Default Re: help with tutu...please

Ill be nice and share my secret. When I make a tutu I tie 2 pieces of tulle on the elastic... then tie 2 more on the first loop. (between the tulle and elastic. HTH! BIG FLUFFY TUTUS!

My problem with the tutu I recently made is when I put the tutu on my dd I can still see the elastic. Like a few gaps and if I put more elastic it stretches out. I dont know how much tulle I used but I know it wasnt that much.
Are there any good tuts for fluffy tutus? I looked on etsy but didnt find any for full tutus.

Here is the tutu I like. Really full and not bulky at the top.

And here is the tutu I made for my daughter.
