Default I need help from Tutu makers...

I have been searching since yesterday for this. I make tutus, but usually for older girls. (3-6 yrs) I was asked to make one for a 1yr old for a b-day party. I don't have any acces to a girl that age to measure, so I need to know what length to cut my strips of tulle to make the tutu. I was thinking 15in but I wanted to check with you guys first. Please help me...TIA

Ooo this is great I was searching for a length reference! Thanks for sharing. How much would you shorten the tutu waist to make it fit those measurements?

I just got dome making a tutu for a 1 year old birthday pictures.

I did 15 inches which made the length about 6 inches. I believe the waist measurment was 19 inches(but this can vary from child to child).

I like the chart! Thanks!! I make my tutus a little longer. For instance, I just made my daughter one (she's 5) & I did hers almost 12 long. The one year old I did was 10 in. long. I guess that would be personal preference though.
