      I did King & I last year and ended up making them as pants (kind of).
      The look was accurate but didn't have to go through the trouble putting
      them on!
      With a bunch of kids, lots of changes it is almost impossible.
      Cut the front and back separate, like a big triangle, pleated the top
      and arranged them on the bodies until got the right look.
      Finally put a wide waistband on. It really works nicely and saves a lot
      of headache during the run.
