I am making no-sew tutus as party favors for my girls' birthday party. I decided to use elastic for the waist band as opposed to ribbons for more universal fits.
Here are my questions:
1. How do you recommend fascinating the ends of the elastic together? I read somewhere that stapling was an option. Is there a special fabric stapler or just a plain ol' office supply stapler?
2. I need to know how loose to make the elastic. I have found waist sizes for the correct clothing sizes, but how many inches should the elastic be loose? For instance if I cut the elastic to be the exact size of a 2-year-old's waist it will be too big. Does that make sense?
Feel free to message me if you have further questions!
