Default Newbie with tutu questions!

Hi! Wow, you can spend hours on here!!! Crazy!!! So much stuff and info and talent. WOW!
Okay so I have many questions...

I am going to be making some tutus for my daughters this weekend. Definately buying non roll elastic from what I have been reading. I know I can just measure their waists and cut the elastic to fit right? But what if I want to make a bunch of tutus to sell? What are the general sizes in inches for infants, toddlers and 4-6 girls?
And does the elastic come on a big roll or do you buy it by the yard?

And how about length? What is standard for length? Or do people buy all different sizes? Thanks so much!!!

And last question... how do you wrap them in the satin ribbon? I haven't been able to find that answer in any instructions online.
Thanks so much!

I usually go by what the parent wants as far as length goes. You might get on a few clothing websites and see what waist measurements they have and see what the "standard" is. Good luck

You can buy the tulle by roll or by the yard. I like to buy by the yard because i think it's cheaper and you can just double up the layers and cut with the rotary.

There are so many different sites that sell tutu's. If you want to go that route, you should look to see how other people are running their sizes on their websites. This will give you an estimate on how you would like to size your tutus.

There has actually been a lot of information on the directions how to wrap the tutu w/satin. It's actually pretty self explainatory. There isn't a special way to do it other than wrapping. I just leave about 6-12" before wrapping so that I can tie once i finish wrapping

Yeah I don't remember exactly how long it took mine but I do remember it wasn't instant. Try messaging the moderator if you can. I'll try to post that size chart.

Okay that didn't work for some reason. Maybe I could e-mail it to you.
