Default Lets talk tutu's for a min...

I know how to make them, but I'm having a few probs. I made one for my DD for pics when she was born. I was using elastic. When I pulled the tulle to make the little knot, the elastic kept stretching. How do I make a very full tutu, without streching the elastic? I see tutu's on etsy with 100yards of tulle?? How the heck do you do that?? ... Ohh and when I made my tutu I was using once peice of tulle at a time. Should I layer it??

Ohh and if anyone has measurements for the waist for tutu's that would be great.

TIA ladies!

I use 1 strip for each knot I also use the 6in strips (25 yards on each roll) so you can use 100 yards and only use 4 rolls! I use the non roll elastic. It's going to stretch so you take their measurement and then take away a few inches and then go from there! HTH

First of all, the elastic stretches naturally when you tie the tulle all on there. So what I do is measure however big I need, then cut off 2-3" of elastic. I also layer my tulle 3strips at a time... hth

and put your finger under the knot when you're tightening it so you don't make the elastic "roll"...and i use the no-roll elastic too...and if you google "simplicity standard measurements" it'll give you the "average" for like...everything

I layer 3 stripes per knot, I may try more in the future, but it makes the tutu very full I also take about 4 or 5 inches off the waist measurement because of the stretching!

Where do you buy your tulle? I saw that the ribbon retreat had some. How does it come in the mail? On a roll?

I just ordered tulle from papermart. They have the best prices, especially if you meet the 300 dollar mark, then you get 20 percent off.
