| | Re: Ribbon vs. Elastic
I use elastic and offer the option of wrapping the waistband with satin ribbon. The satin ribbon looks nicest when you use a wider elastic, IMO. It's also more comfortable against the skin so I always use it on my tutu dresses cuz it's not as itchy under the arms. But if I don't use the satin wrap, I still finish most of my tutus with a sewn-on bow.
I've never tried to use ribbon only because it doesn't seem like it would grow w/ the kid.
