So my children's school hosted their annual Multicultural Day on Friday and I put my hand up as a parent helper....again!
Although I've helped out most years, it's always been last minute and I've never bothered to do the costume thing myself - usually because I'm too busy costuming the kids!
Alas, this year, Tom just wanted to go as an English Soccer player (how lame I thought, but seized the opportunity to deck myself out instead).
So last week, I was in Textile Traders with my Mum and spotted this glorious craft fabric and knew immediately that I had to make a Novelty Dress with it.
The dress and I had a wonderful time on Multicultural Day, and caused quite a few compliments... and laughs...and prods!
"Oh, Mrs P, I'm dressed up like that person there, and my friend is this one!"
I'm thinking now that I'd like to make up the Vogue dress again with the full skirt for work, maybe in a plaid?
