Music Skirts

A friend of mine is the director of a wonderful music program for youth (called Kids in Concert), and asked me to make some skirts for a concert they have coming up. Music Skirts!

These are simple elastic waist skirts. If you have never made them, this is such an easy project, even a complete novice can handle it!

It is just a square (or rectangle) with a casing at the top and a hem at the bottom. I made these with oneΒ  French seam in the back, to keep it neat inside. I cranked out 18 of these, assembly-line style.

My friend provided me with the girls’ waist measurements, and the length. If you would like to sew one of these up, but don’t have the measurements of the person it is for, this post has a chart for general sizes.

It was actually refreshing to take a break from what I have been sewing lately (leos and my Trashion Show outfits) and do something simple and repetitive for a little while.

What have YOU made today?

  1. I’d love to see a photo of one being worn. Do you think an adult would look OK in a skirt like this?
    Good for you cranking out so many of them!

    1. Yes! I will have to snap a photo or two when they perform in them.
      I think an adult would look great in a fun print elastic waistband skirt (or maybe that’s just me:).

  2. these are great! πŸ™‚ I love the music notes floating across them. Perfect for playing in the park. I am working on ballet accessories for a spring performance… 9 wolves, 7 bears and 3 little red riding hoods… I should be doing that and not sitting on the computer… ahh… procrastination! πŸ™‚
