Very cute. What in particular is giving you trouble with the tutu? Perhaps you can quote a few rows for us (not the whole pattern please)?

On row 1 of pattern says work through the center point between holes in lace at each end.

Row 3 of the tutu, reads k16 tlpy. After you do the turn do you complete the row

Row 8 again a lacing row, but this one reads, cut lace carefully. Thru centre of last hole, as before.

When the pattern of 12 rows is complete, you have to knit an extra row as the lace is done on wrong side if you don't. Totally confused.

I can understand your confusion. Is the tutu being added on to a lace top?
Yes, after you turn, complete the row. In general you complete the row unless told to do something else. Does the pattern define tlpy?

No the tutu is made of knit in lace. The bodice is knitted.

How to use Knitting Eyelet Lace
OK, now I see. The yarn is worked through the holes in the lace.
Is "tlpy" defined in the pattern (I think someone else already asked)? After 12 rows you just have to knit another row so the lace is facing you (right side) again.

The wording is odd. Is this how it's written in the pattern?

ETA finding the video was hard!

Tlpy is done by turning your work around, with wrong side acing you and having yarn at back, slipping a stitch from rh needle to lh needle. Bring yarn to front and slip st from lh needle to rh needle. This prevents a hole and you knit sts just knit, leaving the rest not touched.

Tlpy is a wrapped stitch? Are you doing short rows? I'm trying to figure out what it is that you need to figure out. What is the first thing that you're hung up on?

Are you using a self-ruffling yarn that has "holes" along the edge?

One of Ravely photos said it uses "knitting lace" which I think is the ribbon, ruffling yarn. If so, this video might help.
