I was recently hired to build new hoop skirts for Baz: A Musical Tour de Force at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. The other night I was able to see the show and see my creations in action.
Since I was building new hoop skirts I copied the measurements from the old ones for the heights and widths of the hoops. I used a heavier black vinyl with minimal stretch from Heddy's, cutting 2" strips, folding under both ends 1/2" and topstitching to 1" black webbing. For the waistbands I used a black broadcloth cotton fabric. I absolutely LOVE how these skirts turned out and I can't wait to make more for my own collection!
