It is bookweek around the world this week, and my kids school had their dress up day yesterday. The theme was "One World, Many stories".
This was my inspiration, a photo from the internet - Miss L asked was she as beautiful as this Pocahontas - my reply, "of course, you are even more beautiful"
Miss L went dressed as Pocahontas. Mst O went as the lovely Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz. I had the week off work which was fortunate, so I had a bit of extra time to get back into the sewing room and get creating. I had all the right stuff in my stash for both costumes, plus a trip to the op shop to get some jewellery so we could try to recreate Pocahontas necklace, it is not exactly as she had but Miss L was very happy all the same with what I made for her. It was so lovely to see them parading around on stage at school with their classmates in costume. Mission accomplished !
