Aiea High School's Marching Band Aloha Attire
I can't believe how many uniforms my daughter needs to participate in the band program. I think she has a total of 4 uniforms: Marching uniform, Formal Gown (which I still have to make), Pep Band uniform, and Aloha Attire.

This one is to be used for parades and their Spring tour to Vancouver. They'll be wearing it with black pants and shoes and have an embroidered sash to tie around their waist.

I used a McCalls pattern to get the basic shirt sizes, and graded it down to create an extra-small. Most of the order was sent off to the manufacturer, but to help the band save some money, I sewed a batch of the shirts.

We're all very happy to have such a dedicated band teacher for our kids, and are more than willing to help him do the best he can for them.

Thanks Mr. Miyamoto!
