Default Different brands of tulle in one tutu?!?!

I have tulle from everywhere. I need to make a tutu with 4 different colors. I am afraid that it won't look right if I use the different brands of tulle all together. So, I am just wondering...do you use different brands together? Does it work well? Is there a secret?!?! Help!!

I say paranoid and OCD lol! In my opinion i think it will look fine, I have never had any problems with being able to tell the difference but someone who makes more tutu's might tell you different, but i say go for it lol!

I use different brands and don't think you can tell the difference.

I used different brands on the tutus I just made, you can't tell the difference once it's all together.

Although I'd avoid same color different brand, unless that's a look you want. I had to buy more navy tulle for one of the tutus and had to buy it at HL, it was a totally different shade of navy, and it was matte tulle instead of sparkle.
