Default how many rolls of tulle do YOU use...

for a tutu? I started a tutu thinking I was going to use 2 colors and changed my mind. So, I'm using a single color and ran out. I need to buy more, but don't expect to use much yellow. So how many more rolls should I get?

Depends on how big/long and full you want it.
my average tutu's I use about 200-250 yards so 8-10 rolls
that's for a 12-14 inch tutu

I use anywhere from 2-8 25yd rolls. Depends on the size

newborn-2 years I use 2-4 rolls and 5 and up rolls I use 6-8 rolls.

Like pp said it depends on the size and really how full you want it.

Holey Moley! I had NO idea it took so MUCH! I think I will continue making them occasionally for gd, but can't see how I could sell 'em for enough to make a profit.

What's the going rate for these things anyway? For a full, pretty, plain tutu how much do you charge?

Well, that's part of why I only sell custom orders now...so many people sell them with less tulle and for cheap.

mine are huge and poofy and infants are $35 and regulars are $45 and up depending on the size.
they take me about an hour and a half to make.
I consider myself an artisian and do not work for free so in order to avoid so much frustration I don't stock them premade.

On occasion I make some a little less poofy and those are $25..usually only because a customer doesn't want to pay $35 or more..

Sigh..many people don't realize we aren't dollar general...

I use about 6 rolls for most reg size. Mine are full but not like Mika's (hers are awesome btw) I also sell mine mostly to a dancewear store and they are worn for dance so do not need to be thick.
