Default Could really use some help from you lovely ladies!

There is a girl in my school who has asked me to make a tutu that looks like the one in the picture, she wants it just as full, and I got about a 1/4 way through when I reliazed that it was not full enough. How may pieces do you think that creator used for each knot? I used two and it was not enough..

Just letting you know, that if that photo does not belong to you, then you shouldn't be posting it. You have to link the photo.

But the girl sent it to me in a text, and I don't know where she got it.. I am not claiming it as my own, I know it belongs to someone else. She wants me to make it, with different colors.

It's still a copyright issue around here. Be sure to only post your photos.

Is this tutu going to be for a teenager? If so in order to get it super full you will need A LOT of tulle, and at least three piece for each knot.

Okay, But how do I show people what it looks like for help?
Yes, its for a 15 year old, she is 30 inches around her waist, and I suppose I will try 3 pieces. Thank you for your help!

I made a tutu for a teenager a few months ago and I used over 100yards of tulle, it was super full. If you layer it, it will look much fuller.

Try layering it to help with giving it the fuller look. When I do mine I do the first layer, then I flip the tutu and do another layer kind of in between the knots of the first. I use a slip knot on the first layer and a square knot on the second. Not sure if that makes sense but it seems to really help with fullness.
