I cut my elastic about 17 -18" because as you add the tulle it will stretch the elastic a bit (but don't worry, there is still so much room to grow!)

Here is a pic of a regular 2-layered tutu. Again, I just went long strip, short strip, long strip, short strip etc.
I love, love, love this. What a great way to emphasize the two different layers.
