Default How much on average do........

Hi
I was wondering on average how much tulle you use on your tutu's. I have made a few but wondering if I am using enough or to much. I usually work in meters (Canada) but just ordered in yards from a new supplier. So yards is good for me. I know there is more in a yard than a meter. Any help would be great. I have read before some where where they used 50 yards of tulle and thought maybe that was a typo?? Seems like a lot of tulle.
Thanks

withte 50 yards of tulle its no typo, they use 50 yards of the 6 inch tulle!

I prefer the bolt tulle, I use anywhere from 1-5 yards per tutu depending on the size!

When I make it with the 6 inch rolls, I use 4-7 rolls, so 100-150 yards again depending on the size

I make mine double layered so it is fuller

I wish I knew how to sew them to give it the same effect! b ut I am not a great sewer lol

good luck! let meknow if you need anymore help!

I made my first sewn tutu the other day and I used 12" roll of tulle and each layer was about 5 yards. My first one was 3 layers but I'm going to do 4 next time.

Thanks so much for the information. The 50 yards with the 6 inch roll makes sense now. I thought it was from the bolt. LOL That would be one massive tutu. I usually use about 6 meters which is about 5 yards from the bolt. I am using enough. I just ordered the 6 inch rolls so I was wondering. Thanks again ladies. You are all so wonderful.

I use 50 yards at the very LEAST! I just made a 6-12 month tutu and used 100 yards since the tulle was so soft. Here's a photo

Whoa Mama!

Thats a poofy tutu!

I LOVE IT!!!

Just wondering....when you ladies refer to "layers".....how do you get more than 1 layer on a tutu?

I've made a few but usually only use 1 roll of the 6x25 yard rolls and the tutu is so full that I can't fit anymore on it.

Is there some trick to making them fuller or having more layers?

i use a lot of tulle as well. at least 50 yards. usually with the really soft tulle you can get a LOT on there. I tie on 2 sometimes 3 strips at a time and that seems to add a lot of fullness. I don't like to keep stuffing it on the elastic because it tends to stretch it out and then I have to readjust my sizing because it's too big.

I use the 6 inch tulle on the rolls.
i use a minimum of 100 per tutu.
That's for the small ones.
Bigger ones can go up to about 175 yards,
and the tutu dresses can go up to 275-300 yards..
