I tie my knots tight enough to where you have a better chance of the tulle ripping than the knots coming undone, kwim? Just my 2 cents.
I had someone email me asking is this a sewn tutu or the crappy ones that fall apart. I don't loop mine I tie an actual knot but people still think the sewn holds better. I've done it both ways and honestly I can't get my tutu really fluffy when I sew it like when I knot them on. KWIM? I even tried 4 layers and it still wasn't really fluffy.
