I don't know exactly what youre talking about, but it sounds like you would just cut tulle of differing lengths and alternate it around the elastic, and for the angle cut, you would just cut the end at an angle (or in the V) instead of straight across - which would probably be easier to do after you cut the straight initial cut, so I would leave a little extra length for that.

I've done it, pretty sure I posted pics of it too. Maybe a search and you could find my pics. Anyway, here's how I did it.

I cut two lengths of tulle, I think they were 4 inches difference (i.e. cut 24" lengths and 20" lengths - I'm just throwing numbers out here.). Cut the v-cut on all ends. Tie on a long strip with the slip-knot method, but stagger the ends by an inch or so, that way you will have 2 different lengths, as in, the 24" strip will have one strip of 13" and one strip of 11" from the one strip you just tied on. Now, take one of the shorter strips, you're going to tie this one with a square knot around the tulle strip you just tied on, you're not tying it around the elastic. Slip one end inbetween the tulle and the elastic, stagger the ends and tie the square knot. This way you end up with 4 lengths of tulle coming from the one spot on the elastic.

Boy, that's tough to explain. Let me know if you have any questions.

I don't know why I just read all of that since I'm not interested in making them. But the directions do sound very clear and easy. I love the pixie tutus! They are so cute!!!!

I did see your tutu when I seached (very cute by the way), but there weren't any instructions. These were super clear! Thank you so much!
