Default crochet headbands alternative in tutu dress?

Hi was just wondering if there was an alternative that you guys are using for tutu dresses? I have made 2 with crochet headbands which turned out very cute but when my daughter wears them she gets all red and rashie were the headband was sitting. The band is not to small as she wears 0000 (which is tiny)

I know I can tie tulle to elastic but i really like the "top" look and been able to clip flowers on to make a new fresh look every time its worn.

Thanks Lana

I've started lining the headbands with some knit fabric, that way it's still stretchy, not see through and not as hard on their skin.

Would you mind sharing how you do that? I've got tons of knit fabric and have been wondering what to do with it.

This is how I've done it with two headbands together, haven't tried it on a single one yet.

Unstitch the seams in the headbands. Cut two pieces of knit the same size as the headbands, put the headbands right sides together and then a piece of knit on both of the wrong sides, put your machine on stretch stitch and sew a straight stitch down one side, then I sew it again with a zig-zag stitch to help hold it, trim the extra. Before sewing the other sides together I pin the knit to the headband and sew 3 straight lines across with a straight stitch (still on stretch),one at the top, one across the middle and one a few rows from the bottom giving me room for the tulle.

I have fun with the colors of the knit behind it, I've made a black and orange witch costume with a black headband and orange knit showing through, a bee costume with a yellow headband and black knit behind. I'll take a pic and post it.

Here's a couple pics, sorry they aren't great, didn't have a model handy. On this one I also added some elastic ribbon and tried straps instead of the normal halter ribbon tie.
