Default tutu makers, I have a ?

I'm just wondering how many pieces of tulle you tie at one time? I'm hearing peopeople talk about layers and what not and I'm wondering if I followed a bad tut when I learned how to make them. I do one piece at a time and still have been told my tutus look very full. I'm just wondering because I'm making some wholesale for someone else and I want them to be up to par with what everyone else does.

I use 2 maybe 3 strips (6 inch wide tulle), I found a tut on here somewhere a while back. Prior to this, I used 1 strip , it just seemed that I had to use more tulle to make the tutu fluffy, in total I use 60-75 yards of tulle.

I've always only used one piece at a time, and mine always come out full

I generally use 1 as I don't like the size of the knots when I use more. When making mine, I do one layer with slip knot, turn inside out and then in between each slip knot I add another strip and do a square knot. They turn out full

I use two pieces, they come out nice and full When layering with different colors I use one of each color and do the square knot.

I use 1 strip and mine are very full, I'm another that's not a fan of the larger knot you get when using more than one at a time.

I need to figure out this square knot thing I'm interested in trying it, I usually just slip knot mine but I'm always trying to learn new things.
