Smile Need help with my first empire waist tutu dress

I am attempting my first empire waist tutu dress for my little girl's birthday and need help.

I know it is a square knot for the second elastic (the waist) but it doesn't look that nice. Can anyone show me pics of that tying, so I can compare with what I am doing. (visual person)

Also I want to add flowers (that I got on clearance at Joann's!) to the waist, do you glue them on, if so, do you just glue right on top of the knot area. Or do you put them on a ribbon and then just tie that over the waist area.

Okay I hope this make sense.

I was also thinking that it might be itchy for her skin, so has anyone put/sew some fabric on the inside?

I bought instructions for the empire waist tutu and I found it to be too difficult. I did make one but it doesn't look as nice as a regular tutu dress. the top part got lumpy looking and you can see between the tulle strands. so I cant help much with how to knot those.

I use a hot glue gun and glue flowers directly to the tulle. I do this on all of my tutus and it holds well. I glue right onto the satin if I have a satin wrapped waist. I've never had any issues with them falling off of my daughters tutus and none of my customers have ever complained.

Tutus, Bows More Instructions

That page has the instructions that I bought. I didn't have any issues with the instructions. I just think it was a project that was beyond what I can do right now. I think with more practice it would turn out better but I dont have the patience. I prefer tutus and regular tutu dresses.
