Default How to make this tutu

I want to make this tutu for my dd 5th bday next month but I need some expert advice please. This will be my first attempt at making a tutu.

How much tulle do I need? I plan on buying it from Gifts International.

What colors should I get? I know the colors are pinks but they have from regular pink, light pink, fuschia and shocking pink. Or if I get the shimmer tulle they only have light pink and fuschia and light blue, aqua or turquoise.

And of course any other tips/advice that will help this newbie will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

looks like a reg short tutu to me. They just added ribbon and ric rac to it all the way around. you can find free tutu instructions all over the place on the internet. Just depends on the one you want to try. I always use about 80-100 yards of tulle on a tutu that I make. if you were going to use a couple of different colors. you would prob need about 2 of rolls of tulle for each color you want to use. I can't remember exactly how many yards our on each roll.

Thank you for your response I'm just kind of confused on the color to buy since there are so many different shades of pink. Maybe I'll just order a few different ones from Gifts Inter. and once I receive them than I can pick and choose. Thanks again!

Looks to me like there's two shades of pink in there - shocking pink and pink - and the blue is turquoise. I would say if you bought one 100yd spool of each colour that would be plenty.
