Over the top

This week I made an early settler costume for a school dress up day where the kids will have a day where they act out a typical school day a century ago. I might have gone a little over the top on the costume front - I started out to make just the apron and bonnet.

I then couldn't stop myself and so made a cape out of an old blanket.

And then a pair of bloomers. I think this outfit is Georgie's all time favourite of all the clothes I have made her, she can't wait to wear it.

Next week is kids clothes week and I plan to make a few spring things for her wardrobe - more on that later.

It's fantastic! At her age I had serious Little House on the Prairie longings and I would have loved a costume like this!
