Default Re: No Sew tutu question

When I measure and cut I subtract from the length of elastic I will use.
For ex..if dd is measuring 22 inches I usually cut 19 or 20 inches of elastic (sew it together overlapping another inch or so) and once I tie all my tulle on it stretches out to be the perfect size. I've made far to many tutus w/exact measurements all to find they stretch alot and get bigger than I needed them to. If that makes any sense..HTH!
