20" waist x 5 strips/inch = 100 strips (then I go on to calculate how many yards I'll use)

I cut my elastic about 17 -18" because as you add the tulle it will stretch the elastic a bit (but don't worry, there is still so much room to grow!)

Here is a pic of a regular 2-layered tutu. Again, I just went long strip, short strip, long strip, short strip etc.

Ok I added u I'm Natashia Saurey. So I started a tutu and was almost finished and ran out of my sparkle tulle so I'm gonna have to rearrange the pattern I had going on! I did the double knot and from know on always will!!! I love it! The pieces that wrap around the band are not so thick and it's great! I will put my pic up tomorrow!

Mya wanted to show off her petti-tutu so we went to the mall. I got lots of smiles and comments so I'm confident enough that I can make and sell these now

Thanks so much! I value all of your comments!
That is really nice. I wouldn't change anything.

I just finished my first tutu (not a petti version) and it looks a little short. It's about 14" long and originally I meant it for my 6 year old DD1. But wound up shortening the elastic to fit 4 year old DD2. It still looks a little short on her.

How old is your DD and how long did you make this?

I think I can help you answer someone else's question about how you knotted the pink strips so they wouldn't slide off. It looks like rather than merely knotting the pink onto the brown, you double knotted it with the brown.

In other words, you tied the pink on and then you took the end of the brown strip and knotted it with one of the two pink strips.

I love, love, love this. What a great way to emphasize the two different layers.

My daughter is 3 and this skirt is 13" long. For a regular tutu I usually make it about 8". For a 6 year old I would probably do about 16"

I actually didn't do a double knot. It was only one knot. I wrapped the pink around the brown a couple of times then took the bottom of the brown and tied it to the pink end furthest from it. I tried the double knot and didn't like the way it looked. Not sure if that made sense lol
