Default Tutu for 8 year old

I need to make a tutu for my neices 8th birthday. Iv only made one for my 3 year old so I dont know how long to make this one. Do you make big kid tutus just as full or do you make them longer and less full? I hope that made sence.

someone posted a waist size and length of tulle as a guide not that long ago. use the search i'm sure you will find it. anyway for a size 8 it said tutu length 10.5 inches so you would cut your tulle 21-22 inches or so and waist size 24 inches. as far as fullness that is totally up to you how poofy you want it along with the length.

If it's your neice, could you borrow one of her skirts to go by? 10 inches sounds way short to me. Or measure a skirt at a store? And, I say the fluffier the better. Good luck!
