Default Elastic Tutu Sizes

I need help with determining sizes for tutus with elastic. I have a ton of tulle and haven't any elastic sizes set yet. I have searched and searched and there are so many differences in what people list for waist measurements/sizes for tutus.

I would like to have 4-5 different general sizes to carry and also make custom to waist size if needed.

So for example a 2T is 20 inches what is the circumference of the sewn unstretched elastic. Would you do maybe 18 inches???

Same with customer says their waist is 20 inches, your sewn product unstretched is how many inches?

I am planning on making some elasticized tutu's and have been watching elastic videos on expert village for days on end... LOL...

From what I have learned, you need to determine the stretch of your elastic because different types can vary. The best way is to take a measurement of your waist and then wrap the elastic around your waist until it is a comfortable stretch. Whatever the difference is makes up how much you should subtract...I would figure out the percentage for your waste, then use that ratio depending on the waist for the size you are working on...

Did any of that make sense? I like to overcomplicate things....

No that makes perfect sense and so does researching elastic. Thank you... I don't know why I didn't just research elastic in the first place. I keep looking for tutu sizes and so frustrated with all the different tutu measurements.

Thanks again!!
