No prob! Im not as savvy and pro as some of the ladies on here but I try to help with what I can You def do not want to tie knots to tight thats when you will get a lot of stretching you could always try to "add" another layer where you have gaps! HTH

This!

If you have a waist measurement, you don't need as much stretch in your elastic to make sure it will fit. That is why I get measurements on my tutus to make sure they won't be too big/small since they aren't quite as stretchy as ones that have less tulle. (But they are much poofier)
Keep trying it on until it is as full as you like it to be. Then you know.
I don't use headbands - they are a pain for me and get all stretched and ugly.
Even the dresses I make with them attached, I still use elastic and attach them after the fact.

I know I don't know as much and haven't been doing this as long as some of the pros here, but I will share my limited experience advice. I tie my tulle all the way around the elastic, then I go back and tie more on the actual knots to make it fuller. Gosh, how do I explain, not actually on the knot, but on the straight part of the tulle above the knot on the elastic. I actually tie the pieces that are next to each other together, not the same one together again. I am sure that is as clear as mud, I love playing with tulle and seeing what I can 'make' it do, so I have no clue what the actual real remedy is, but it works for me.

I recently made a tutu for my 8wk old little girl (6wks at the time) and I used one strand.





And it came out pretty full. It stand up by itself.

Far as the waist stretching out, I've heard a number of things when making them ready to ship and of course to get an actual size when making them custom. I hope you can figure it out. I also found a tut for a petti tut through searching FOREVER!!!

I do find mine stretch a bit, but about halfway through making the tutu, I fold over the elastic about an inch and resew. I also flip my tutu after doing the first layer of knots and then go in between each knot and add another piece of tulle.

I'm trying to visualize what you're saying but don't quite understand.

Use 3 strands and tie square knots. They leave it MUCH fuller than a slip knot. You don't have to keep tying more knots and adding more tulle, because the square knot leaves it super full. A square knot is the one when you tie your shoe (minus the bow) but twice.
