Default problem with tutu waists...

When making a tutu is it common for the elastic waist to stretch out when you're finished? I started out with a 16 inch waist and after putting my tulle on it, it's now about 18 inches... Is this normal? What am I doing wrong?!?

I think that's pretty typical. I usually cut my elastic about 3 inches shorter than I need.

It does stretch a bit but you might be tying the tulle too tight. I use 3/4" no roll elastic and tie the tulle so that I can still slide it along the elastic. That way it doesn't roll and stretch. HTH!

Thank you! I have been using 1/2" elastic for the smaller sizes and 1" for the larger sizes and I think I might be tying it too tight... I'm just afraid that the knots are going to come "undone" if that makes sense... Maybe once I start wrapping my knots in ribbon, then that will prevent that problem
