Book Week Costume

I made this Dorothy dress for Claudia from a (now discontinued*) McCalls pattern about 3 years ago. She still loves dressing up...bless her!

The dress (just between you and me) probably won't fit her for much longer. The shoes were made with love by a friend. They're from St. Vinnies, sprayed with glue and dusted with ruby glitter, and she's all set for Book Week.

Zoey would have made a perfect Toto don't you think?

I tell you, it's times like this I wish she could stay little for just that wee bit longer...


*McCalls and Simplicity have a fabulous range of costume patterns.


  1. Gorgeous outfit, your daughter looks beautiful.

    Mines going as the Geek from 'The Geek, the Greek and the Pimpernel' it was a toss up between one of the twins from the Floods or the Shiralee but green face paint and overalls didn't quite cut it.

  2. My husband (Grade 2 teacher) announced last night, at 10 o'clock, just as we were heading to bed that he needed a BFG (Big Friendly Giant) costume by the following morning for Book Week. Needless to say, I didn't get to bed until 11. He did look funny, riding off this morning in his costume carrying his suitcase and dreamcatcher.
