Default Costume help!!! Asap!

I am trying to make a tutu dress for DDs halloween costume. She is going to be a scarecrow. http://www.etsy.com/listing/81529303...facet=handmade
That is my inspiration. But, I am using about 5-6 4inch strips of tulle because I don't want it to be see thru, and the knots are REALLY bulky. I tried using less tulle in each knot, but it is see thru when I do that. Any tips?? Thanks. Oh, and I'm using 1/2" elastic to tie the tulle to, so I can't pull the knots REAL tight because it will make the elastic stretch!.

To get the coverage on that style dress they use almost 200- 250 yards. I make them all the time.

I have LOTS of tulle to work with, I just can't figure out how to get the knot to look nice and neat, but still have enough coverage. It's driving me crazy.

Do you have a 6 inch crochet headband you can use for a base, then you can do layers from the bottom up until you think you have it thick enough?

Not sure if this makes sense...
