Default How do you make your tutus look like..

I am going to start making tutus again, and as I am looking around on etsy, I was wondering..

How do you make your tutus look so full and fluffy like this (not my picture)- http://www.etsy.com/listing/62823502...ref=v1_other_1

as opposed to more flat like this (this tutu is one of mine)- http://www.etsy.com/transaction/33910108

I want mine to be really full, but I just can't figure it out.

Also, I have a review lined up for a rainbow tutu and I am thinking of doing a peti tutu, do you just double knot the small strips close to the bottom of the tutu?

Thanks in Advanced!

how many layers of tulle do you put on? i tie one layer on then go back and and tie another layer in between the first layer and then go back and tie another layer on top of that.........does that make sense probably not because i stink at explaining things

I do like the PP said also. Unless I'm making a pixie stlye tutu that is. They naturally do that fluff for me. I love making tutus. I need to get back into it again too. They are so much fun to make Hard to watch them sell though because I want to keep all of them for my dd LOL. I still have yet to try the tutu mafia style! aaaah. I have the tut though.

I am more of a visual person, so it doesn't really make sense..sorry!
I ususally just do one layer - I have done 3 before (stack them and knot them on), but I didn't like the way they turned out.

with one layer you will not get the fullness like the tutu you posted wish i could explain it better

Well...if you just want to do a double layer, you can square knot it. I like this because the knots stay super well. :-) That will create fullness, but I believe the one you posted is triple layer.

When you say you tie one on first do you do a square knot? I do the square not they just look a lot better to me then the slip knot. Anyways when you do the knot do you put it on top of the tulle you just tied like hmmmmm trying to think how to explain it. Like would you go under the tulle up at the top by the elastic? I hope that made sense lol maybe I should take pics of what i'm thinking.


Also I love making tutu's and can not wait to make the mafia tutu!

What I do is like Veronica said. I tie the tutu all the way around like normal. Then I go back through and tie another strip on in between each knot. Then I go back around again sometimes after that "layer" and tie another strip in between those knots. Depends on the fullness I'm going for. Does that make sense?
