Let her know that it takes a lot more tulle for an adult with width and length so the cost will be higher. Also my coworker didn't take into account her big butt (we are both big girls and make fun of each other all the time, in a friendly matter) and it was wayyy to short in the back. I think 15 inchs might be a little short.

I would go for it! Price it at at least $75 and then you will have the experience under your belt! I think that if we made teen size tutu's that they would really sell at shows and the such, I know when I was a teen I still loved tutus!

That helped a ton! I'm gonna have to call her myself and talk to her a bit because DH is the one that spoke with her on everything. Because I know the less "fluffy" they are, then the less it is going to stick out. So I was going to try and make it less fluffy, but not thin. IDK! This is nerve wracking. Does anybody know when tulle goes on sale at HL again?
