We were asked to make a Spanish Jota national solo skirt and apron for a dance festival. This costume comprises the skirt and apron and a shawl with bodice or leotard worn underneath. We made the skirt with a concealed zip and a built in apron which looks as though it is a separate item but much easier to deal with and will not come adrift when dancing. We made this with an adjustable waistband so that it will last longer and we did not spare on the fabric, making this skirt as a circle skirt so it will move beautifully when dancing and not restrict movement. The skirt is made from a lovely fine cotton with an authentic print and the apron has a lovely authentic cotton black trim.
We also made some bloomers to finish it off. We can make any national solo costume to order, please note national costumes involve quite a lot of research and attention to detail so allow plenty of time . We make all sorts of costumes for dance festivals, all genres and styles, here is a link to the Dance Festival Costumes home page.
