This is K's second year of participating in chorus at her school. For the winter concert, the kids are to dress in black bottoms and a white button down shirt. K's shirt from last year (a Burda magazine pattern that Grandma sewed) still fit but her skirt did not. Time for a new skirt!
Inspired by Nicole's black 2+2 skirt for her Miss Z (okay, totally copied!)
Miss K's chorus skirt is made from black cotton sateen that I picked up from the The Rain Shed when we were in Oregon specifically for a chorus skirt. It's the 2+2 skirt from Oliver + S in a size 8.
The skirt closes at the side with 2 snaps hidden in a placket and a loop and button. The button is vintage and from my mother-in-law.
The pleats are stitched down the front the first 5 inches below the waistband. I also put a black velvet ribbon around the waist like Nicole's.
The kids put on a great show. And bonus, they finished early enough for me to get to P's first basketball practice of the season.:)
Now it's time to begin the Christmas present sewing...
