Default Lengths for Tutu Dresses?

I want to start to make a few costumes for Halloween and was wondering if anyone knows the measurements for a knee length dress.(How long do my strips of tulle need to be?) I need the the shoulder to knee measurement. Most of the ones I will be making are going to be for sizes 2T to 5T.

Is there a chart out there anywhere? I find lots of measurement charts but they don't have any info for dress lengths


Thanks for any help

Everyone has a different preference as every child is built differently.. especially with a tutu, you won't want the fabric to be dragging on the ground.

It's really best to make them to order and measure the child to get it right.

I'm making them to sell at a craft show so I mostly just need the average length I guess.

I'd borrow a kid to measure or if you have one use them...lol I have a and 15 yr old and I use to measure for older kiddos like 5 yr olds 7 yr olds we just kind of estimate the length on her.. or another idea is to go to Walmart and measure dress lengths on the rack..for sizes 2 thru 10 yr olds..ykwim? just a thought..HTH

I made one of these last year but I didn't write down the length I used. My kids are both older now so I may have to go to Walmart and measure.
Thanks
