Default tu tu dress

I'm wanting to make my dd a tu tu dress for Halloween as a "Fall Princess". She is 5. How many yards of tulle do I need and where is the best place to purchase the tulle (online)? Oh and what size of elastic do I need? One more: Where do I buy those pretty flowers that you put around the top?

The directions that I use say to measure the child's waist & take 3 inches off for how much elastic to use. I just starting making them & I bought 2 in width elastic & it doubled over on its own, so, I would suggest using the smaller width. LOL. I only use the 6 in tulle rolls. Its more expensive, but its worth it to me to only cut the length I need. I did my daughter a skirt tutu & it took 25 yds of the 6 in tulle & she is 5. Obviously, it will take more since you are making it longer. I bought my tulle from 100 yds for $6.50. HTH
