Default Re: Elastic width for tutu's

I use 3/4" no-roll from Joann's on all of my tutus. I get the by the roll which is about .84/yd and then I use the 50% coupon. Comes out really cheap.

The key for me is to not tighten the tulle so tight around the elastic... tie it loose enough where you can slide it without stretching the elastic out. I also use the square knot instead of larkshead knot which keeps it much more uniform and poofy. Hopefully not too much info... HTH!
