I like to fold my tulle so that I have four layers. I then hand gather it up. The length of tulle you use depends on how tightly gathered a tu-tu you want.
When your tu-tu is gathered hand sew it onto the little edging you crocheted onto the bottom of your bodice.
Tuck in all strings and sew two snaps onto your bodice.
