How much tulle do I need?

My daughter wants a tutu dress for her birthday party. I took her measurements and the length we need (from under her arm pits to a little above her knees) is 16 inches. her chest measures 21.5 inches and her waist is 20.5 inches.

we wants the bottom skirt part to be poofy-not flat, but not TOO poofy.

does anyone have an idea of how much tulle i'll need for this?

  • It will depend on how wide the bolt is. When you go to purchase it I would ask the person there. My guess would be 3 yards because I think you can cut the bold width in half.

  • I'd go with scout mom- that sounds about right to me. Remember that you're going to layer the tulle also.
