I would try cutting your elastic slightly larger than the lengh needed loop your strips around the elastic and sew it below the elastic so that you can gather it as much or as little as you want for the desired fullness. Hope this helps.
How do you attatch the bow on your tutus? Are you using elastic or ribbon and tieing when done?

i used to make mine on ribbon too. are you using 6" tulle or 3"? the video with the ribbon shows 3" i think. i used to use 3 but when i moved to 6 inch, it made it more full, so maybe cut your strips thinner? i did love the look of the tutus on the ribbon, but i seemed to get more requests for the elastic tied ones.

I am wanting to make my tutus more fuller. How are you doing yours? I cut 6 in wide pieces and use two at a time when I tie them. The shorter ones turn out good but its the longer ones that dont poof out as much. Any suggestions?? I am also using elastic waist bands. I tried the ribbon but couldnt figure it out.

mommyparker, would love to see a pic of your tutus to gauge how full they really are. Can't believe someone has suggested for you to "de-poof" your tutus. Normally we can't get them poofy enough!

A quick way to 'de-poof' is to steam it... It'll hang a little differently and be less poofy. Generally speaking, the tighter the knot, the more strips you're ending up using, and therefore the poofier it will be.

You can also try tying them looser, but with a double-knot so that it doesn't come out. More work tying, but the results are great!
