| | Re: A Not-So-Full Tie Tutu?
I think it's actually the knot that makes them so full. I am currently making them a stack of four strips Ex: my infant tutu is about 5 in. in length so I cut the strip's 10 in long by 1 1/2 in wide.
I would try cutting your elastic slightly larger than the lengh needed loop your strips around the elastic and sew it below the elastic so that you can gather it as much or as little as you want for the desired fullness. Hope this helps.
