Default Adult tutu dress

My etsy acct has finally taken off, yay! And today I got a request for my Snow White dress in an adult size, eek! I have never played around with adult size dresses before, for the most part I think it should be no big deal but to help avoid wordrobe malfunctions should I suggest that she wears something underneath or would you sew the strips together? That seems like it would take hours to sew them together but I just don't want her to be worrying about "peak a boob" or flashing her behind. Also, with that much tulle (it's a floor length dress) do you think the elastic top and waist will be enough support?

I've made so many tutu dresses that I'm sure I can pull this off, just want to get some ideas for the couple things worrying me about it. Thanks!

Do a corset tutu top out of solid fabric and make the skirt extremely full. I feel sorry for you. I hate adult tutus. It's a lot of work.

I feel sorry for me too, lol. Do you mean like this one? http://threelittleprincesses.com/ite...-Sewn-Tutu.htm

She is wanting the empire waist and the tulle on top. Here is the direct link to the dress of mine she is wanting. http://www.etsy.com/listing/79885964...f_shop_favitem
I am sure I can figure it out, it's just a whole lot of tulle to do a trial and error run on it.

holy moly thats going to be a lot of work!!! i just got a request for 2 adult tutus and im totally dreading making them hahaha

i would make it just likes she wants (same as the kiddo dress right?) and ensure she knows that she has to wear something under it.
