Default How many inches for a 12-18mo tutu?????

** Ok, so I have the waist figured out. Now, how long do I cut the tulle? I am using 6x40yd spools. So, how long should it be? She wants it above the knee.**


I have a custom order for a 12-18mo tutu. The baby just hit the 12-18 mo size and is more on the smaller side. How many inches to cut the elastic?

I am used to 2t + sizes, so this is a first other than tutu dresses which is just a crochet hb

Thanks ladies!!!

you could make it on a 3" crochet headband

My regular size 12-24 month elastic waist tutus - are 18" waist (make it around 16.5" before tying on tulle - to allow for stretching).

I would do a 6 inch or 8 inch length for that age. If you say she is petite, 6 inch might work better. I call those the cheeky tutus, cos it is short enough to see just the bottom of their diaper covers.

For a 6 inch length, you will need to cut the tulle 14 inches long. I am assuming you are doing the no-sew kind right? If you are sewing, then just 12 inches would be enough.

Nah... I don't think there is such a thing as too long. Unless it is so long that the poor baby trips on the tulle! LOL~! It is preference... I usually ask my customers to measure and tell me how long they want their tutus.
