You can get more knots on the elastic this way without stretching it out which makes it more full

LMK if this doesn't help and tomorrow I'll tie a couple knots next to each other to show you what I mean.
I hope to try my hand at making a tutu one day (it's on my list of things to do). I would really appreciate a pic (or lots of pics if you have some to share) that would help me and the others(?)

Pretty please?

Yeah, I guess that makes sense. I hadn't thought to do that. I guess that is why my tutus look so cramped and then overlap themselves at the top. I would think that this would help to avoid that. I am glad I saw this!! I have only done tutus for family as practice, and now I have my first actual order.

You can also spray the layers with starch (no puddles) and then hang it upside down (stick the waist over the top of a hanger) and in 15 minutes turn it back over and it will stick straight out. I suppose you can lay it flat on a counter but i didnt think of that until now
BUT dont mess with it when it's drying, it will make it all funky looking!!!
