| | Re: Ribbon vs. Elastic
i used to prefer ribbon. the only thing is that you have to have an exact measurement for it to fit correctly. although it does make a beautiful bow in the back [or front depending on where you tie it] and the knots don't come undone cause you can do it as tight as possible. until i discovered the square knot! there's other posts about it also. if you use a square knot on elastic it won't stretch out at all and you can still make it pretty tight. i still wrap satin ribbon around the waist for a finished look, but the elastic still allows the tutu to grow with your daughter for awhile. i'm loving elastic lately! i vote elastic!
