For a nice and full tutu you should use at least 75 yards (3-6'' rolls). If you buy it by the yard at a fabric store you should buy 9 yards of tulle for the length it really will depend on what kind of look are you going for. I really like how the 13" lenght looks on my 5 year old. Just cut 26" strips and ford them in half

I only use bolt tulle. For 4t size make it 12 inches so I double 12+2inches=26 inches. Then I would make 10 26 inch section cuts which would yield 8 strips each. To get the yards needed 26 inches x10=260 inches now for yards 260/36 =7.22 yards. Hope that all makes sense

It depends on the fullness and length you want. I have heard if you use a cardborad or something sturdy to wrap around and cut it that way - it's loads easier. =)

Do you cut the tule on the 6 in rolls in half for 3 in stripes or use the full 6 in?
