  • I teach in a high school and I actually have a costuming class. We made rehearsal skirts lst year and did some of both, gored and gathered. We did waistbands on the gored skirts and drawstrings on the gathered skirts. They work really well and fit most all our girls. They are very handy. We used a cotton/poly blend. If you use all cotton, they wrinkle too badly. We did them all in...
