I've decided to reinforce the waistband by sewing two lines of stitching instead of one, just to make sure the tulle doesn't go anywhere.
But my question is, what can I use to spray on the tutu to make the strips sit up and stay poofy? Can this be done?
We finally have the product in stock I was talking about -- search around for "Diamond Hole Net". We sell it, but there may be some place down under that has it too

Some of our clients use this for dance/performance tutus. It is not as soft, so it's not great for babies, etc.. but it really stands up
