First school concert costume

In September 2014 ....
Daughter #1 had a school concert, the theme for her class performance was 'Colonial Australia'.  The kids were singing and doing some heel-and-toe polka as part of their act.  The costume brief was for the girls to wear an apron of some description with a peasant-style dress.  However, the school didn't want student to have a costume that they would never wear again, so my plan was to make a dress that would be worn again after the concert.

The final costume -
Apron and dress

I added a ruffle to the dress to make it longer -
I should have made it wider than this!

Happy singing heel-and-toe dancer!
(And she's worn the dress heaps since then, yay!)
