Default Help with tutu

Ok so can someone tell me what is going wrong with this : i measured my daughter and she is about 23 inches around. Well i cut the elastic and overlapped it a couple inches and sewed it. I finished the tutu but it was too big around. I thought since i overlapped it and it was a couple inches shorter it would be fine bc it would stretch. How did it end up being big?????

That is really frustrating. Is there perhaps so much tulle on the elastic that it makes the elastic stretch? Otherwise I might guess that your elastic was accidentally cut a little longer than you intended.

Th elastic definitely stretches when making them. I size it up to the person after making before sewing ends together.

If you made your tutu very fluffy, then the elastic stretched. When I make my really full tutus I subtract at least 3-4 in.
