Default Re: tutu

I made over 130 tutus for my big show last year....I didn't use a tut b/c I had bought one when I was on vacation.

I use the spools of tulle (6inches wide) and layer two to three pieces on top of each other to make it really full. I also squish the pieces as close together as I can so you cannot see the elastic or ribbon.

I didn't have a problem with the elastic stretching.

A great tip that I found on here is to wrap the tulle around a cookie sheet (across the longest part) and get really even pieces.

For short tutus I made my pieces probably 12 inches long.

Let me know if you have questions. I can show you one too if you want.
