id say make a skirt out of some fabic the colour of the tulle your going to use. Then get the tulle make sure its really stiff, then sew as many layers to the skirt as you like and Tah-dah! Tutu. I think Ill make one myself. Post a Pic.

First take a peice of tulle as wide as possible and about 12-20 inches tall and fold it in half, so that it is about 6 to 10 inches tall. Then stitch about an inch from the fold, thread a ribbon through, pull tight and repeat as many times as you need to to go around your waist.

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

Right, and then add another layer an inch more or less lower, and another, until you have the poofiness you want.

I bought a little crinoline for like 30 bucks, then got matching-ish veil whatsis fabric and added poof until I was happy.  I wanted it reeeeally poofy to go with a corset, and it came out ok - pix to be put up here eventually...

You probably could also take a waistband sorta thing, and fold tulle cut in random scraps over it, and stitch them on to give you a random, wild forest fairy sort of look....
