I do this too - I usually use about 3 peices and I still have issues with the elastic stretching too much. Irritates me to NO END...and yes, I cut about 4 inches off of the original measurements and I still end up with a tutu that is too big. I usually have to 'take up' more and sew it to get the right size.
