Default Newborn tutu help

A pregnant co worker of mine asked me to make her a tutu for her baby. All of the ones I have ever made were for older girls (2 years and up) so this was very new for me. I did a lot of research before making it and decided to cut the elastic at 14 inches and the length of the tutu is 7 inches (although I was aiming for 6).

It's been so long since I had a newborn I guess i'm forgetting how tiny or big they may be! I'm terrified that this tutu is too big for a new born, possibly too long. Can I please get some opinions. The waist seems a bit big to me. The length didn't seem like much of an issue until I just went and measured it to see it was 7 inches. I don't want to give it to her and it be too huge when she has her baby.

Please help. Thanks!

Do you have any friends with newborns? Have them measure their waists, and then to where ever you want the tutu to "land"

I thought of that, the only one I have says she don't have a tape measure or anything, she is not a craft type of person lol. But I believe I have adjusted the waist accordingly, now I just have to trim up the length and I'm scared to mess it up.

Wondering if I just bunch it all up and cut?

I prefer doing newborn tutus on a crochet band. I've made several for newborns, but was always scared of the fit. Using a crochet band there are no worries I think 6-7 in is a perfect length.

Thanks! I do the crochet headbands for my toddler and it fits her good so I was scared to use it for a newborn I may just stick with this length then, it's not like it's something she is going to be wearing a lot it's mostly just for pictures.

The crotchet headbands work great for newborns, though i prefer elastic for all my tutus. 6 inches is what I did my last few newborn tutus as, and it was a good length.

Thanks! I'm going to have to try it out next time, I think I might have this one under control I was just freaking out since it was my first time.

My son was 19 inches long when he was born so you might want to take that into consideration. Newborns usually are 19-21 inches long (average)..7 inches doesn't seem to be too long..I would just ask her how she imagines the length to be. Good luck!
