Thanks everyone. The cello is an electric cello I bought on ebay. I was surprized at what good tone it had. I've been trying to make more cool skirts to play cello in, cause most store bought skirts + cello = indecent exposure. I'll get a full length photo after I wash it. Our old orchestra had kilts as part of the uniform in high school; it wasn't bad becauswe they were long enough to cover up. It's funny, I have no problem rehearsing in pants, but it just feels wrong to wear pants while performing.
I played 2 shows with the band on Thursday, so it needs to be washed before I put it on again, even for photos
. If you want to see more action shots, there are a bunch of pictures now on the band's myspace http://myspace.com/penny_blacks
I did 12 rows of shirring on the top of 2 rectangles, sewed then together then measured the botom of the tube. I used that measurement to make a circle skirt, and sewed them together. Then since I'm lazy, used bias tape to do the hem.
