Default Re: another tulle question

I actually did the math and broke it down...i think the width of my strips were 5 inches instead of six, and this was for a tutu with a 24" waist. But you get the idea. We were buying 40yd bolts online because it is soo much cheaper; kind of a pain to cut but with the $ saved.
Double layer=72 pieces =approx 5 yds (7 tutus per 40yd bolt )
Triple layer=103 pieces =7yds (5.4 tutus per 40yd bolt )
Quad layer=144 pieces =10 yds (3.8 tutus per 40yd bolt )
