I've made mine varying lengths. I measure the child they are to go on. My basic length is about 12 inches from waist to bottom of tutu.
I don't see why you wouldn't cut it if you want it shorter! I've never needed to. HTH...

Yeah, I custom make all the orders that i receive for tutus/tutu dresses, so that me and the buyer know that it will fit and be the exact length that they want it to be. If you make it longer than it "should" be, I don't see why you can;t just cut the bottom parts (even), it should be fine!

I always cut my strips twice as long as I want the length. Then I fold them in half and wrap them around the elastic waistband. And to cut mine, i used my rotary cutter.
