2 : Underskirt of tutu. All layers are made of gathered net and are sewn onto the same tutu plate. When worn the tutu has a slight umbrella or bell shape depending on diameter of the hoop inserted. As frills are sewn onto the same plate the tutu is no so scratchy.
Tutu construction hints - rolling up each layer of tulle before gathering, lighter stuff on top 2 layers then darker underneath to create a cool look, each layer is a little shorter to make it stand out
