In the middle of getting ready for the wedding I got a panic phone call from my grand daughter. "I need a costume for my English/Drama presentation for Monday." This was Thursday night and I had to leave for the farm on Friday morning.
So in the midst of everything else I sat up late and made a costume for her. She had to be a convict child from 1790. I'm not sure this is very original but I know the bonnet is the same as those issued at the time. I didn't have her to hand to do a fitting it was just do the best you can. I sewed on fake patches and told her to rub it in the dirt. (I don't think she has done that.)
Here are my two girls all dressed up for their job as ring bearers at the wedding.
As I have said before Monique is on the Autistic Spectrum so I knew that if I didn't have this costume finished to take to the farm she would freak out. The moment she saw it I saw her mentally draw a line under that problem and then she was ready for the next. "Would Aunty Laura and Uncle Shane really get married without any problems?"
