My 5yo has a 22" waist. I cut the elastic at 20" and sometimes at 21" lol- it will stretch some when I put the tulle on it. For the 7yo, I would cut it at 22".

I have never made a tutu dress, but would like to. My daughter is a shortie. She is only 38" tall. My other friend's kids are 44". maybe that will help you with the length of the tulle? I think I would have it be about 27" long on her. but that is pretty long. i like long! I would add 3 inches to the 7yo's. I came up with 3 inches by comparing growth charts...there is a 3 inch difference for ages 5 compared to age 7

Hope this helps!
Jenn
