As you drive past most preschools, kindy's and schools you see a sea of international flags, so I guess it should come as no surprise that Rascal's preschool is having a party on Friday and the children are to come in national dress.
I thought it would be fun to make a costume that represents Rascal's heritage and as I have no idea how to put a Dutch National Dress Costume together I opted to honour her Scottish roots.
I think that hubby expected me to just make a tartan skirt, but what would be the fun in that? Unfortunately my fabric was not nice heavy wool and I didn't have enough of it to make really deep pleats, so its not going to swish like a proper kilt, but I did my best.
|Hopefully I will get a photo of Rascal wearing the whole outfit when its complete.|
|Proof that I CAN actually use an iron without ruining all my hard work!|
Next decision- will she be a ScotsMAN complete with sporran, Tam O' Shanter, ginger hair, ginger beard and Sgian-dubh (obviously I wouldn't put a real dagger in her sock, but a cardboard one could be made easily enough!)?
OR a wee highland dancer with green velvet waistcoat, white blouse, plaid and a plaid brooch?...
Oh the possibilities... (Maybe I should check with Rascal before I get too carried away!)
Have you made any fancy dress costumes for your child, if so, what did you make and did they like it?
I just have to add that Hubby is sitting here laughing at the smug noises coming out of me... I'm just SOOO proud of my wee kilt!
