Default how much tulle

when you are making a tutu, do you stack tulle on top of each other before tying it to the elastic or do you just use one piece of tulle?

It really depends how full you want your tutu. I am by no means a pro tutu maker, but I used 2 strips of tulle for each knot with the ones I most recently made, and really liked how they came out.

It will also vary with each tutu. if you have a shorter/longer length you may need a much larger amount(for the tied tutus).. When starting out just be sure to have 5 rolls handy and roll with it.

I use one piece of tulle at a time but really cram the tulle on to the elastic to make it nice and full. I use between 75 and 100 yards of tulle. I've attatched a photo of one of mine.

I love how light and airy that looks.

Thanks everyone. I am going with one because I started with two and didn't like the way the knots looked. I am able to get them much tighter with just the one and then cram them together. Thank you again!
