Default how many rolls of tulle for 1 tutu??

I decided it might be easier to use the rolls of tulle for tutus! How many rolls of tulle do I need for 1 tutu? I make them for my 4 and 5 year olds and like to do 2 layers per strand. Thanks!

It really depends on how long you make them & how full you make them. My daughter is 3 & her Halloween one last year only took 2 rolls but it wasn't very long.

For a 14-6" tutu I usually use 4 rolls. I like my tutus to look really full. For a 8-10" tutu I use 3 -3/14 rolls.

I'm making a tutu for my daughter who is almost 4. I'm actually waiting on the tulle but I asked the same question. I bought 3 rolls of 6" tulle. Apparently that makes a pretty full tutu.

It should, it all depends on your length. Remember to and 1" for the knot to your cuts! A full tutu should have at least 75 yrds, but again depends on the size and length.

I bought mine from UB. I use 1 orange and 1 black tulle. but I think, I want it to be more full. I cut them about 26" (to make 12" length), and 2 strands/knot. My niece's gonna be a witch and she's about 5 yrs old. That's the whole costume for her that I pulled together.

I get all my tulle from here:

Tulle Wholesale - Tulle Ribbon

They have tons of colors and the tulle is very soft. I always order at least 3 per tutu, 4 if it's longer. I just made a tutu dress for my almost 2 year olds that used 6 rolls. I like to really stuff the tulle on there though so that it's really full and fluffy.

Hope this helps!
