Eisteddfod time again!

It's that time of year again...Eisteddfod. Parents volunteering with costumes, props and practice, it's all good fun for the kids and something which I don't mind helping with when and where I can.

This year Megan is playing a character called Suki in a small play her class is presenting, and on the weekend I had a go at making her her very own kimono. I used a basic dressing gown pattern to get the shape I wanted then made a nice wide stiffened sash. I wanted to go the extra step further and do the big loopy/bow thing on the back but Megan said that it was perfect as it was and no-one was going to see the back anyway!
 If I get the time I think I'll do it when she's not looking!
She looks so cute all dressed up. Now all I have to do is figure out how to do the make-up and hair.

Thanks for stopping by.
