Default Re: What went wrong with my tutu?

For my DD I always have to subtract 3 inches. don't know why, she's so little as it is, but that's the measurement that works best on her.

And I've done a couple of dresses for her, she's a size 2T and I never use less that 100 or 125 yards of tulle so sounds like you need 1 or 2 more rolls at least.

I've never attempted a tutu-dress but the basic tutu itself I had to subtract a good 4 inches for one I made my neice with the elastic waistband. It was my first one and I had to redo it 3 times! I've been doing them with the crochet headbands for the waistband and love that method. Then I weave a ribbon through the headband/waistband that ties at the back to make it adjustable.

An easy way to keep from tying the tulle too tight is to be able to fit your pinky through the tulle and the elastic after completing your knots. It shouldnt be so tight that the elastic begins to fold. Hope this helps
