Default Re: Need help when measuring for a tutu

Great tips thanks! The elastic is the thin one ill try the thicker/stronger one

Also, if you are tying your knots too tight it would cause you to need to cut off more..But remember, if you are needing to cut off this much (4 inches) then the elastic may not be as nice and stretchy on the completed tutu.

Try practicing making the knots tight with your thumb under there to hold it so it doesn't pull so tight on the elastic..
