Just wanted to pop in to show a couple of costumes Yanic needed for school.
First one was for a play they performed for all the parents and friends. He was supposed to be a respesentative from a society in the future. This was his description of what he was looking for: "white pants, white shirt with gold shoulder things like a king".
For good reasons, none of my kids own white pants. So, I hit one of the local thrift stores and found a pair of women's summer pants. I took them in where needed, in order to make them fit. It worked out great. The shoulder boards are made from cardboard. I hot glued fabric and trim on to them. They are velcroed to a regular white dress shirt.
Okay, here's the worst pic ever. Sorry. It's a screen shot out of a video. Unfortunately, that's all I have. But, I think it's obvious who's Yanic there...
Then a few weeks ago, Yanic's class had a day long field trip to a 19th Century one-room school house. The kids were asked to look the part as well. So, here is Yanic in front of that school.
I made the hat from an old pair of pants using the Jack & Jill Hat pattern by Izzy & Ivy Designs.
The suspenders are made from the same old pants and I used this tutorial at Make-it-and-love-it.
Still on my list to make, before we go on our annual road trip: a cover for my Nook, car organizers for the girls and a skirt refashion.
I will be back soon with another post (hopefully). Until then, enjoy the summer weather.
