This week my daughters’ school celebrated its 150th birthday.
On Thursday evening, each student took part in the school musical which featured the school through the various decades.
In addition to a musical choir number, Lily had a couple of speaking roles. She needed to wear a pioneer / early settler costume. She wanted to look like the historical American Girl, Felicity.
This was a very thrifty costume. I scored about 6 yards of the calico fabric for a few dollars at a thrift shop and the size 3 pale pink cowgirl boots were 5$ at Value Village. I found the dress pattern (size 8) at the Salvation Army for one dollar. I modified the sleeves.

The entire costume came together for under $12 (a little why I sew moment!).
The musical was an enormous success. So many memories were made that night.
Have a great weekend,
