| | Re: What size elastic for a tutu?
I would recommend to keep using the one inch, but make sure you get the non roll kind. You need to put your thumb under the knot and tighten really tight, then pull your thumb out and tighten a little more. It takes a lot of practice to get a really tight knot. I haven't double knotted mine, but sometimes I think about doing that. If you are using anything smaller than one inch, try a clothes pin instead of your thumb.
