Default Crochet headband tutu dress - help??

I have a customer wanting a santa tutu dress for her little girl. The only red crochet headband I have is a 10" so I want to just cut it and then resew it to make it smaller.
I'm a little worried it will just unravel or something when I cut it though. Has anyone done this before? Am I good to go?

Maybe just try folding it in half? It is a little harder to thread the tulle through, but it works

Folding the top in half works. I do that quite a bit as it gives more coverage to the top of the dress. I have also cut and resewn tops to adjust sizing. The top won't unravel. Just be sure to catch loose ends with your needle and thread.

What if you sew the band first and then cut after? Do you think that might work?
