The music department at my school gives out free Ts to the band/orchestra/chorus kids, and this year I got the largest size they had and made it into a mini  Grin


I made the pattern myself by just measuring around my hips where I wanted the waistband to start and end. The waistband is about 6 inches top to bottom. There is also an inside lining of black knit cotton fabric.
Then I used all my leftover fabric for the bottom, basically two long 5-6 inch high rectangles ironed where I wanted pleats. I sewed it together in 6 seams.
Finally, I used 99cents/a pack iron-on letters to put "ORCH DORK" on the back. Ta-da!

PS: I actually took in the waist later, but I didn't take more pics because my camera was out of batteries and I was too lazy to get them. Heh.

very cute. have you worn it out yet? you might want to add a drawstring or some elastic to the waist, or you might start to lose it throughout the day!

i learned that the hard way one night, i thought the topstitching would be enough. nope! thank god i was wearing cute boy shorts underneath it!
