    My daughter loves Tinkerbelle. This is such a perfect idea for fairy costumes. They would be cute party favors too.

    I was wondering how much tulle you needed for the adult skirt? Which type did you buy, pre-cut or by the yard?

    1. dwulf dwulf says:

      Hi Sara Jane! For the adult skirt I bought tulle by the yard because it was much cheaper that way (don’t forget to look for a coupon!). I believe it was about 16 yards for both skirts pictured, so I would guess about 11-12 yards.

    I’ve made a tutu before for my daughter but the tulle just stuck together and looked like a big matted ball and I couldn’t get the strips to straighten out. How do you get and keep the strips to lie straight?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      So strange! I haven’t had that happened. I do recall when making these that I would run my fingers through the strips as I made each knot. It is also helpful if you tie the band around a chair back (or something similar) so that it stays in place as you add each strip. I hope this helps!

    What did you wear as a top? I’m desperate for a queen of hearts costume for my daughter’s and they are so expensive! I’m thinking I might be able to stumble through this diy project. Fingers crossed

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Jennifer! I wore a black tank top with a cropped short sleeved black jacket. You should definitely try it! It’s SUPER easy. You just need a large work space (floor area).

    How long did you cut the pieces of Tulle for the adult size costume? I think this is a great idea and would love to do this for our Disney Halloween trip.

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Nancy! Glad you like it! I measured from my hips to my ankles and then doubled it.

  6. Lauren says:

    These tutus look awesome! I’m hoping to be the Queen of Hearts for Halloween. I was wondering if you did multiple layers of tulle, or just one around the elastic?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Lauren! Thank you! It’s just one layer 🙂

  7. Audrey says:

    I’m trying to make the Queen of Hearts tutu for myself. I think it is an awesome idea! How much tulle did you use in each color?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Audrey! I know I should have included that, so be forewarned this is a guess (since this was so long ago)! I think I used about 6 red, 4 white, and 2 black.

        It this in rolls or yards?

    I had the same problem as another commenter. They strips wound up coming out wavy and kind of bunched up. My daughter was happy with it but wonder why it happened.

      Hi Kim! I’m not sure why the strips get wavy. Maybe a snag in the scissors? So strange! I’ve made so many of these and that’s never happened. I’m glad it worked out in the end!
