Thanks for the positive feedback, guys!

MissyMafia: Even soft tule is stiffer than chiffon, so it puffs out a lot more.  I think two layers would have swallowed my kid!

craftygem: Tule is easy as pie.  It doesn't fray, barely needs pinning, and doesn't slip around when you're sewing.  I'm kind of a lazy sewer and it worked well for me.   

craftylittlemonkey: I'm working on a tutorial (just gotta add pics) but in the meantime...

*Work from the bottom up (i.e., hem ruffle, then 2nd tier, 1st tier, yoke) and then sew up the back seam.  It's less stressful to sew in straight lines than gigantic circles.

*When you cut out your fabric strips to make each tier, wind them around a piece of cardboard to stop tangles/twists.  So much easier to keep track of, and as you join pieces together it's easier to make sure your seams all point the same way. 

*Also, all that fluffiness makes the skirt look shorter than you might think so consider adding extra length right at the beginning when you're measuring...especially if you're making one for an adult!

I'll update the post once that pesky tutorial is finished Smiley
