This is what I was going to suggest too. I bought the one for the pettitutu, and it includes the instructions for a regular tied one as well.

This is a good video on how to easily cut bolt tulle:

When I sew a tutu, I just start with like 1/2 elastic. Measure waist size. Don't sew a seam..

Cut your tulle into 6" strips. When I but the 6" tulle rolls, I just wrap it over and over around a piece of cardboard (premeasured for length of skirt). It is double of what the length should be.

Take the tulle and fold in half, fold it over the elastic, lay the next piece the same what and start stitching, keep repeating. I use a wooden chopstick to push the tulle if my machine gets ahead of me. (When you come to the end of the elastic, you can then sew the elastic and sew the waist seam. I can make a tutu very quickly like this.

Clear as mud right??? The sewn tutu's can be used for play as they stay together and don't muss up as much.. My opinion only. I to knot and sew tutus.. (knotting I can do at the coffee shop, basketball game. etc.

Yes, that's my DD. Luckily for me, she loves dressing up and having her picture taken!

You are right... Shipping itself would probably cost more than the tulle! The hard roll in the middle weighs more than the tulle itself.... *sigh*

Don't be put off ordering from tulle overseas, I'm from the UK and I order mine from the US, I have huge problems finding good quality tulle here and I can buy the tulle from the US and pay international shipping for cheaper than I can buy bolt tulle here, yes it can be more for the shipping than the tulle but if I work out the price per yard it is still cheaper.

Shipping usually takes about 7 days.

I have ordered from ribbonretreat and ribbonsandbowsohmy, there is a company called favorfrenzy I haven't tried yet I don't know what their quailty is like but their prices are cheaper!

Hey, Pat-are you a member of Ribbon Heaven? I used one of their free tutu tutorials and it was really good. It was for tied/not sewn. I've sewn with tulle as well, but it's not my favorite thing to do.

I got the one from www.tutuguide.com but it was a while ago and I have heard good things about angelbabes so may would have gone with that. It is useful for the suppliers and sample lengths though. There is also a section on the bolts as well.
