The amount is hard to determine because it depends on how much you cram onto the elastic....just as a number, I would say 100 yards. The 25 yard rolls of 6" would be easiest instead of bolt tulle. For the elastic, you will need to measure her and then cut the elastic 2-3 inches shorter (it stretches as you make the tutu). To spice it up, you can add ribbon, knot extra pieces at the end, knot the ends, lots of different things - you will see tons of styles as you search. Since she hasn't done one before, it would probably take a few hours to get everything ready (cutting and so on) and get the tutu made. I am not an expert, but HTH! Good luck!!
Yup, everything she said!
There are lots of how-to videos on youtube and such. She'd probably "get it" better if she read/watched the tuts. You can get black and hot pink by the bolt, but I've yet to find it on spools anywhere but online. It's also cheapest online. If you buy locally, make sure you get coupons!
