Thanks so much. I actually make my little one's tutus both ways...some with crochet tops and some with elastic bands - it really just depends on the one she points out that particular day. (Yes, she's "royally spoiled!")
Anyway, I thought maybe elastic was used, but I wasn't sure. I kept picturing (in my mind) a "gap" between the tulle knotting where the two pieces of elastic were sewn together. (Does that make sense?)
As for more about me...I am new to forums, so where do I post that info?
