Hi ladies, so I googled looking for tulle wedding skirt and I found these, I have to admit Im in love!  Any ideas on whether soft tulle or the stiffer stuff would do?  How many yards do you think? 

I thought tearing the tulle might be a good idea but then I read somewhere else that pinking shears might look better.  I know it's a tall order, but I've got 7 months to make a few prototypes and work out the kinks.  Although there is a recession going on and I'd love to not have to buy 500 yards of tulle to make 20 different kinds of skirts.  Any tips would be greatly apppreciated!

From the pics I would say those skirts consist of a petticoat probably made out of cotton to protect the legs, then a layer of stiff tulle, then a few layers of cream/yellow soft tulle. It looks like the soft tulle was torn in a tiered type format. The bottom layer only torn in strips to the knee, the next layer torn in strips up to mid thigh and the final layer torn all the way up. Depending on your size you'd be looking at at least 5 yards of stiff tulle, then probably 10 yards of soft tulle to get the crazy foofiness of those skirts. And at least four layers of tulle in all, each one gathered to the same waistband. So it would be gathered stiff tulle, gathered soft tulle torn in strips to the knee, gathered soft tulle torn in strips to mid thigh and the final layer of gathered soft tulle torn in strips to the waitsband.
