| | Re: Tutu waist size...
I have to stray from the majority~
I do not take away, but I do not tie my tutu's either, so maybe if you sew it makes a difference? If I know the measurement, I cut my elastic the exact length, maybe add 1/2" for where I sew it together at. But then it ends up being slightly stretched when they put it on because the tulle takes away an inch or so from the inside measurement. They are always snug, never loose.
For length I do 12" for the older girls, unless they specify something different.
