Question Rue (Princess tutu)Help?

I'm planning on doing Rue's Don Q. dress from the DVD cover:

And I was thinking I could make the skirt by layering 3 circle skirts, but since circle skirts tend to use up quite a bit of fabric I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how I could go about it differently?

Well, you could cut out the largest circle first (with a wider diameter than needed, as the second will cover it anyway) and use the inside as the first. You'd still need to cut out the second one, but it'd save quite a bit of fabric. When making the skirt, just sew the largest circle a bit farther down than normal. I'm assuming that you'll be using a sort of tulle or something for added "fluff" here, so correct me if I'm wrong.

I think I understand what you mean. I have both a petticoat and a pancake tutu that I've been considering using for the poof, but I don't actually want to sew directly to those?
