Default Question about Tutu dress making

Question for no-sew tutu ....

I am thinking of make tutu dress (possibly the halter dress type) for my daughter 1st birthday. I try to make something that she can wear for years to come too (later on.. might just be tutu skirt). :P

Anyway, my questions are:

- How wide of the strip should I cut for good full puffiness? I bought the 6 inches width spool. Can I just use 6" or cut it in 3" or so? If I can use 6" one, it would save a lot of time.

- For elastic, what size should I use? Is something like 3/8" good, or the bigger one is better? Is there any specific type I should use, or anything would be okay? (I bought one yesterday but I did not know what I was doing)

- For the ribbons wrapping around the waist band, how do you do it?

- For the prettiest fullness, is there any good advice? How about, putting a couple of strips together and knot at the same time?

Thanks !!
