I am going to be making my dd a tutu dress for Halloween. Tulle by the yard is on sale right now at hobby lobby. How much will I need to buy? She wears a 4t. I want it to look nice, but not overly full. Thanks in advance!!

I did 4 yards and it was not enough for my 3t LO. So more lol. It also depends on how long you want it. I did 12 inches so cut the fabric 4x24.

I know how, just not how much tulle I will need.

Overly full looks the best IMO but to each their own. I think my tutu maker uses either 15 or 20 yards for my 4 year old DD.

this sounds like a question for the ladies in the craft cafe group on here some of them make tutu's

 I did one of a 6 yrs old and used 10 yds. I would say at least 8 yrds.

I used 4 yards for a 24 mo sized one that was shorter. I'd say double that to be safe.
