Default Help with a wrinkled tutu dress

I know there are posts on wrinkled tutus and I've read them all but I need help with a tutu dress.

I know how to make them but as I'm making them the tulle is so long it just gets wrapped up together and wrinkled so any thoughts on that process?

Also with shipping them, for my tutus I fold them in half wrap in tissue paper and place in a zip log bag but the dresses are too long for that so how do you ship a tutu dress so it doesn't arrive all wrinkled?

Thank you so much for any help.

I always spray mine with water and then hang them to dry.

for my tutus i run the shower and hang the tutu in the bathroom and close the door, so it gets all steamy in there. i leave it for about 5-10 minutes and then run my fingers through it. [i also give my customers these instructions]. it'll fluff up as it dries. i've never made a tutu dress but i'm sure the same method [or the other methods these ladies shared] will work. maybe just make your tutu dress and then steam it to get the wrinkles out before you ship. good luck!

Ok, thank you but how do you ship the tutu dress so that it doesn't wrinkle?

I've heard to use a mailing tube that's as long as your dress. Never tried it though.
