Elsie has been twirling non-stop since she's had it on. I'm so glad she loves it so much! Here is how I did it...
spare fabric for the waist of the fabric- I needed 1/4 of a yard, but that was pushing it- any size over 3T may need a 1/2 yard
1/2 inch elastic- enough to go around the waist of the dress
Measure the skirt you're putting the petticoat under and add 2 inches. You can always trim the tulle once you have it on. Its best to go long.
Take that number and divide it by 3. This is the length of your petticoat. 1/3 is the waistband made of regular fabric and 2/3 is for the tulle skirt.
Repeat with the remainder of the tulle sewing every 2 layers. When you get to the last two layers of tulle, hold up the skirt to see where you may need more tulle. I bunched the last two pieces more than the first four.
