This pic is NOT mine, but I am just amazed by the fullness of this tutu...any idea how to get this type of fullness? This tutu is amazing!!

Thanks for any help!! Cant wait to get to know everyone!
The girls here have given you great advice. It's not very difficult to make a super poofy tutu But please remember, making a tutu look super-full in a photo isn't that difficult to do (if you've used several pieces). The tulle strips, when pulled apart and shaped, can stand straight out (as in the photo).

I agree with Maxine.. to me it looks very full because of the way it's posed, it looks beautiful I wish I could get mine to look like that! I think you have great advice here and I also belive the stiffness of the tulle will determine the effect. I just posted yesterday about diffrent types of tulle so I went out and bought some and found the tulle on rolls is better for more of the ballerina look (full and wide) and the BTY is better for flowey looks. I hope I helped and we would love to see a pic!!
