 the top one is shorter and probably courser material hence why it sticks nearly straight out. if the tulle is softer like the bottom one, trimming it may not solve the problem.... maybe wearing another petti underneath it will help?

 When I made my tutu, what I remember is the more pieces of tulle you tie in there, makes it stick out like that. (and obviously shorter like the first one also helps it stick out more) If you think cutting it will help-also try using those half pieces to tie into the top to give it more fluff :) then you won't have to buy more tulle. That depends on how long the tutu u already have is. It sounds like it will work in my head!

I might just end up buying one its for my daughter's halloween costume. she informed me that now that she is in eighth grade we can start buying costumes instead of making them. AHHHHHHH  teenagers!!!

@unlease I understand what your saying. I was going to get more tulle and make the long pieces shorter.I'll probably end up caving and buying one.
