Default For those of you who make adult tutus...

...how do you measure your tulle? I am wanting to make a few adult tutus and would like to know the best way to do this. For kids sizes I cut a piece of cardboard to length and then wrap it around that. It's hard to find a piece of cardboard that long though! Any tips?

Thanks!!!

when you say measure, do you mean the length of tulle???
If so i always measure from my waist to 4" above my knees. I always make sure to put longer tulle in the back so that way it will be even and not so short on adults backhind.

If you're talking about measuring to cut you can get a cardboard that is the length of the tutu you want and only cut one end so it's twice as long.

So, you want a 20" tutu in length, wrap it around a 20" board but cut one end so that when it's laying flat it's 40".

I think the OP is referring to longer tutus rather than the shorter ones. If that's the case, you can get a large cardboard box at any moving supply place or even Walmart carries some pretty cheap (in the shipping aisle with tape, padded envelopes, etc). I do have an issue with the cardboard folding a little, but to remedy that situation, I just duct tape it to where it won't bend (as much)....haven't figured out a better way yet so until I do, duct tape it is!

This is another reason why I love bolt tulle! I have a 8ft cutting table and I cut everything there...no need for pieces of cardboard or cookie sheets.

I never got any updates on this thread until now.

I was actually referring to when you cut the tulle. I wish I had room for a cutting table-right now my "studio" is a corner in my living room. Will try finding a large heavy duty box.

I think I will try the foam core board for now. That is until I can talk hubby into building me my own separate house devoted only to crafting!! That would be so awesome! If richardson42 can make her amazing tutus on it then it should be good enough for mine!

(BTW...I am still getting compliments on the adorable petti/leg warmer pics you did for me a while back! You do such beautiful work!)
