Default Tutu help re: elastic

Ok, I've only made three tutus & I thought they came out pretty good. I go to make the fourth...I cut the elastic to 15 in, sew it together, get almost all the way done, hold it up & its HUGE!! I measured the inside & it was 23 inches!! What did I do? How do I undo? How do I keep from doing it again? TIA!

I did cut it, sew it & start attaching tulle & that is when I noticed that it "grew." The package said non-roll & the other 2 that I made w/ the same elastic didn't do this.

I found that if you tie it on there and then when your done with it all go back and tighten it will help with stretching!

I make tutus a lot. I have been doing it for a little over a year now. A tip I picked up along the way is put the elastic around your leg and the tie the tulle on. It helps with stretching and then you may end up using less tulle as well. Hopefully this helps.

I've had that problem too!! I just thought the elastic I bought was no good... all my other tutus were okay and I used the same elastic before so it wasn't like a bought a different brand. I don't understand it either. I just blamed the elastic. LOL!!!
