Default help with tutu...please

Ok so I made my oldest dd a tutu for her birthday a few weeks ago. I posted it and got really good feedback. But I really want to make a fluffy tutu. And I dont know how to. I googled "how to make a tutu". But found nothing for a full tutu. I even read a few threads on hg on how to. Some ladies say use the up and down method. I just still dont get it.
My problem with the tutu I recently made is when I put the tutu on my dd I can still see the elastic. Like a few gaps and if I put more elastic it stretches out. I dont know how much tulle I used but I know it wasnt that much.
Are there any good tuts for fluffy tutus? I looked on etsy but didnt find any for full tutus.


Here is the tutu I like. Really full and not bulky at the top.





And here is the tutu I made for my daughter.

Wow thanks for sharing! I still don't get it though. Maybe this is just not my niche. I so want it to be but its just so stinkin complicated. ugh!


Wait a minute, could I be using the wrong size elastic? I'm using half inch of the non roll stuff.

This is how I make mine

I buy 1 inch non roll elastic though you could prob use 1/2 inch

Sew your waist
Cut your tulle to how long you want, don't forget to double A easy way to do this is do roll is on cookie pan and then cut all at once!

Take 3 pieces of tulle and make a horizontal knot
Then make a vertical knot and pul tight and go all the way around until you see none of the elastic! This makes a VERY full tutu!
HTH!

Ok. I think I get your way. Make a tie then over that do the loop tie. I think I have seen that way on another thread. And I'm sure I'm not using the right lingo but I think I get it.
Now do you use 3 pieces of tulle for the second tie?

It is the same 3 pieces for both knots. It is like tying a double knot, one knot long ways and one knot up and down all with the same three pieces of tulle HTH!
