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!)
