I’m not trying to insult you or anything of the sort, but did you maybe get tulle mixed up with organza?  Tulle is like a netting of sorts, used for tutus and under dresses to add volume, while organza is a sheer, translucent flowing material with a slight sheen that lays nicely and creates flowing layers.  Tulle is starched so it stays stiff.  You might want to try getting some organza and see if that works better for what you’ve envisioned for the dress.

I would try to wet it a bit.  I think that will soften it a bit.  I make them all the time, and I know what u mean about it all getting tangled together.  Lately I have seen tutus made with mix/matched material, and that is super cute.  I think it is cut with pinking shears so it doesn’t fray as bad.  Maybe to get a softer effect you could mix the tulle and fabric.  I would try getting it wet first though so you get the exact look you are going for.  Oh, and you could also add a couple drops of liquid fabric softener to a sink full of water and dip it in the water.  let me know how it turns out, or I might make one tonight!

Try pinning the tulle to the elastic / bias that you are using every 1/2 inch apart. Make sure that you use a zig zag stitch on your sewing machine (you can always cover the top seam with a ribbon so don’t worry that you are sewing it seperately from the top portion of the dress, I would also reccommend starting with the longest layer of the dress and working your way upwards while adding your layers. Good luck, hope this helps. 🙂

 Initially you have cut the ribbons 20 inch and also you can cut them whatever length you want the tulle strips. You should cut your ribbon two times long as you want your tutu to be. If you’re final finishing is 10 inch flower then you have cut the ribbon 20 inch.For more collection your can vist BBcrafts for tulle with many different color
