I'm attempting to make a no-sew tutu for myself and I need a bit of help. I currently have 10 yards of tulle to work with, and I've got about 6 yards of it on there right now and will add the rest tonight, but I feel like the tutu is a bit too long and I don't want to redo everything I've already done. Also, I'd kind of like the tutu "hem" to be a blunt edge rather than a wispy ball type thing with ends of varying length. I know I'm doing the easy no-sew route, but once I have the tutu at desired poufiness, can I just take scissors to the ends and end up with this straight effect? Or should I simply redo the strips?

Any advice/pictures of your own would be super helpful. If it helps at all, this is my inspiration picture:

You can take scissors to the ends, it'll be fine.

I think it would look better with pinking shears, though.
