Default How do you figure how many spools of tulle you need for one tutu?

I have always just cut my tulle from the bolt, I just tried the tulle on the spools and it's so much easier! How do you figure out how many spools of tulle you need for different sizes & length of tutus? I hope this makes since, thanks for your help!!

NB = 1 spool
6" = 2 spools
9" = 3 spools
12" = 4 spools

That's my basic fomula and then add of subtract some depending on the waist size and fulness once it's on the elastic

Well for my daughters first tutu, which was reversible, I used 50 yds of tulle, so 2 spools.

Her second one I used the same amount but instead alternated the colors, so it was half of each spool.

Mine always come out super fluffy.

I do not really count how many spools I use exactly I just go until it is as full as I like it, but I know the last tutu I made had a 20" waist and was 12" long and I used about 85 yards. So not quite 4 whole spools, I was going to add more and the mom didnt want me too so maybe 4 spools is what I normally use. The smaller ones I make I use between 2 and 3 spools. Maybe I am no help? LOL
