The brief was:
Tuesday - dress up as favourite book or T.V. character. Lala wanted to be Dorothy the Dinosaur, but that was quickly vetoed - too hard basket; then
Thursday it was dress up as a princess for the day - phew now that could be interpreted in loads of different ways I just have to pick a country and an era.
With time at a premium I took a shortcut (well, for a patternmaker like me it is).
|Minnie Mouse outfit: purchased headband, black felt, steam a seam and all fabrics from stash. Bloomers and tights handme downs, pattern - opshop. Total cost $4|
I have resolved to use my stash and be joyful that I actually have a stash to use. I wrote a post about prosperity way back here and in it I talked about the misguided concept of 'not enough'. Time for me to walk the talk I think.
I would be interested to know what thrifty costume concepts you have come up with - Kindy seems to love to have these dress up days, and I'm keen to expand Lala's dress ups box.
