Disclaimer: I've never made a tutu (tied or otherwise), so maybe there's a technique of which I am unaware, but I agree with Maxine -- you may be moving into more advanced sewing here.

You could add straps too.
I asked my sister (who sews all her clothes and my nieces clothes) and she suggested the same thing. I think I will give that a try. Thanks!

I only make tutu dresses for my dd and my nieces. My dd complains sometimes that it is a little itchy at the top. I make her wear a half slip when she wears her dresses, but sometimes the slip will slide down some and then the tulle is up against her skin again. I was trying to find a way to make it more comfortable for her. (:
