You can get more knots on the elastic this way without stretching it out which makes it more full

LMK if this doesn't help and tomorrow I'll tie a couple knots next to each other to show you what I mean.
Yeah, I guess that makes sense. I hadn't thought to do that. I guess that is why my tutus look so cramped and then overlap themselves at the top. I would think that this would help to avoid that. I am glad I saw this!! I have only done tutus for family as practice, and now I have my first actual order.
PLEASE DO NOT SELL TO ME!!! NEED a 12 step program!! Anyone know of a good one?!!? Ribbons and Stuff Anonymous?!?!
