Default How much tulle?

Okay so was going to try and make my little sisters flower girls dresses. We really like the tutu halter dresses. But I was wondering how much tulle I would need to make it not be see through or what I should do. The dresses are for 6 yrs old. The wear a 6 in girls. Any advice or help would greatly be apperciated. TIA

I would say atleast 200 yards of tulle per dress off the 6" rolls. Good luck!

I use 150yds or more of the 6" tulle. Some colors of it is thinner\softer and sheerer than others.

For a size 6 I use 300-350 yards to make them not see through.

Okay my sister changed her mind on the tutu dresses because she founds something else for cheap that works out better. However I recently made a flower girl dress for my friends wedding. this is how it turned out.
