Crochet Band for Tutu!

A year and a half ago I purchased a tutu for my little girl.  She was about 6 months old then.  After a few months of not wearing it, I put it on her again, and realized that the elastic was stretched out!  I would not stay on her skinny little body without help.

I decided to check on Ravelry and see if there was anything I could crochet really quickly.  That way I'd avoid the stretched-out problem next time.  I found a very simple, easy pattern that I whipped up in a few minutes.  Then I removed the tulle from the old tutu and put it on the band.  It's a very pale pink.  I also had plum color tulle and a white tulle in my stash, so I included strips of that for more body.  I added decorative ribbon and then wove a ribbon through the band for a waist-tie and then put it to the test... She loves it!
