I also folded the tulle accordion style so it would be more fluffy. And when I was making it I noticed that on the edges it was looking a little flat, but I wanted it to have a more rounded look, so I used three strips on each edge, sort of wrapping it around the edge, if that makes sense. I am going to be making my dd one very soon and can take pics if you'd like.
Heres the one I made for my niece:
I can make the bodice part well, but I am still not happy with the tutu. I am still a little confused as to how you do the tulle. Do you tie layers of strips together? And also how do you make it so even on the bottom?
