Default Teenage Tutu

I have an order to make 2 tutus for a teenage (size 25" waist)

Any idea of how many yard of tulle I'll probably need for a 25" waist?

TIA!!

It depends on how long you are making them and how many layers. I do two pieces of tulle on each knot and my standard tutu is 20" around and I cut the tulle 18-22" long and I use 50 yards of the 6" tulle on each tutu. I sometimes use more, but this is the minimum that I use when doing this method. I hope this just gives you a ballpark. I think I would plan on 75-100yds of 6" tulle.

I made one for a teen a little while back...I think I cut my strips 21 inches long and I used 100 yards of tulle (6 inches wide). Good luck
