If you are using an elastic waistband, you need to measure around the waist and then subtract some (not sure how much, I think 1 or 2 inches - I don't do mine like this anymore)....((this is why it fell off your daughter))
hope this helps

How do you get your's so fluffy? Is it a matter of separating the layers more, or do you do different length layers? Mine come out good, but not as fluffy as those. I lay three stripes on top of each other and use a square knot to tie them on to 3/4" elastic. Should I do something different. I have to make super fluffy white ones for my photography right now so I need to know what to do differently. Thanks.

I always use 6" wide tulle and 3/4" elastic and I also use a square knot method. I take 1 strip of tulle at a time (I don't double or triple). I tie the knot on the bottom of the elastic waistband. All of my pieces are the same length, I don't vary that. Does this make sense?

Yes it does, but one more question .. do you tie stripes over other stripes or is it one layer of one stripe all the way around?

Wow, yet it looks more full than mine that I use 3 stacked stripes! Okay, I am going to try that on my next one, might save me some time too. Thank you!
