I wanted a sundress, so I made one.  It's a shirred top and a circle skirt.  I bought the fabric ages ago just because I loved it, and had it waiting for the perfect project.  I'll have to take a pic sometime of the dress without the cello in the way, but This is one of the few pics I have of the dress so far (all with cello in the way of the dress)

i played the cello. and they made us wear skirts to orchestra concerts. not a circle skirt+cello=hazard
so i had to play it side saddle. it was uncomfortable.
i really love the dress. it has the right amount of skirt to play the cello. afterall, it's not THAT kind of show!  Wink

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 Smiley.  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.
