Skirts, skirts, skirts

Sunday, April 27, 2008

As I mentioned somewhere I am working on a play. I have a group of teachers and we perform a play each year for charity. It is a good way to collect money for the school foundation and it is fun during the school year for us. (And a lot of work, but let's forget it comes the worst part of the work so I try to forget it till tomorrow...)

This year we have a Hungarian comedy written by Csíky Gergely. The title is "A nagymama" (Grandma). The first scene takes place in a school (you know, in the old times with uniform and strict rules, a school for girls only) and the second in on the beach and in a hotel....

So we needed uniforms for the girls. As there is no uniform in this country (only in some schools, but it is quite rare) we had to think about it. We could find blouses (old timers...) but no skirts, so I decided to sew them.

It was a big job as I am not an expert of clothes (sewing I mean). We bought the cheapest febric we found (and I think the colour is the ungliest blue on Earth) and I started....

I found an easy pattern in Burda, and I found a "zip how to" in a book, so the first one was finished.... After the 6th piece, I am a real expert of this skirt and zips inside :D
I embroidered the girls' (colleagues I mean) names in the skirts and they were ready... The girls were so happy (they liked the embroidery the best...sigh...that was the easiest part...)
