Default Am I missing something here?

I have seen the fabric tutu's popping up everywhere they are adorable, but wouldn't they fray like crazy? You could never wash them but, even without washing I would think they would fray.

If the strips are cut on the bias of the fabric fraying would be none to very minimal...If I were to make one and sell it, that is what I would do. If they are cut with the grain, absolutely they would be frayed like crazy in a pretty short amount of time.

Several of the tuts said to use pinking shears to cut the fabrics--this would reduce the fraying. Or you could make it out of scrap knit fabrics and be no-fray...

thank you knits would work but don't come in nearly as many patterns at least where I shop lol, and cutting on the bias would waste a lot of fabric.
