I wish I could show you a picture of Amelia in her royal finery, as I finished the costume last night, but it was finished after Amelia was in bed. This morning it had to be packed up and sent to school. I will show you all when I can, I am very pleased with it. Instead (as my contribution for the Friday Archive) I will show you a couple of costumes that I made back in February 2007, for a Rock ‘n’ Roll evening at the school.
I made these matching circle skirts, complete with stiff calico petticoats to make them stand out. This was so much fun, and so easy, and didn’t the girls look adorable.
Amelia was 6 and a half, and Michaela was only 19 months old.
We had a really fun night.
The school had spent the day with an invited rock ‘n’ roll band teaching each year level a dance, which they performed that evening on the outside basketball courts. Families were encouraged to join in with the dancing afterwards, and everyone brought along their picnic dinners.
In the interest of family harmony, here is a photo of Rory on the occasion. He did not wear a costume, but had had yellow day at kinder, so is wearing a yellow t-shirt that was not usually one of his. Rory was 4 and a half.
It was a perfect summer evening, and lots of fun. The kids still talk about it.
