Default Re: TUTU Tulle question

The easiest tulle to use is the tulle on the six inch spools. It requires a lot less cutting. The amount you will need depends on how big a tutu you are making. If you're making a 10 in tutu you will need to double it plus 2 inches for the tying. So you're strips will be cut 22 in for a 10 inch tutu.
I personally use 4 pieces per strip, some only use 2. It is your preference.
I cut my elastic about 4 inches smaller than the waist size.

I also used spools to make my tutus. I used two to three depending on how big the tutu was.
