Default Tutu makers help!!

I just made my daughter a tutu for Halloween and used almost 200 yards of tulle did I do this right or did I make a major mistake? LOL. She's a size 14/16. I just thought that was a lot of tulle for one tutu.

Thank goodness I thought I goofed lol. I got to hand it to all the tutu makers. It's not as easy as it looks and dealing with a lot of tulle
is a PITA

I use almost that much on my smaller sized tutus so it sounds about right. They take a lot of tulle to make them nice
