Cut the Tulle

Cut strips of tulle double the size of your desired length. A good rule of thumbs for length is:
For short tutus, cut three or four rolls of 6”-wide tulle into 22” strips (more tulle = fuller skirt).
For long tutus, cut seven or eight rolls of 6”-wide tulle into the following length strips: 12 - 18 months = 24”, 2T = 30”, 3T = 35”, 4T = 38”, 5T = 42”, 6T = 46”, 7 yrs. = 50”, 8 yrs. = 54”. These sizes are not meant to go all the way to the floor, but rather to the ankles. Long tutus are not recommended for children under the age of 3, as they can be difficult to crawl in.
