Theatrical Sewing

I have a granddaughter who loves ' Theatre'. When she was little ...she always said she wanted to be a Clown when she grew up...well she no longer wants to be a Clown...but she LOVES to act, sing and dance and she is very good at what she does. She is now part of the Christian Youth Theatre.
 Last fall when we were away she was in 'Snow White'. 
We were very disappointed that we missed her performance. 
(She was little Snow White.)
This spring she is in Anne of Green Gables. She is Josie Pye. I'm not sure if I offered...or my daughter said I would sew a dress... 
I got the makings for the blue dress that Matthew bought Anne...with the puffy sleeves.
Makings for the dress.
Even though my granddaughter is not Anne, she is approximately the same size as the character Anne, so she became the model I fit the dress on.... I am almost finished...

Plus we had a few alterations to do on Josie's dress as well.

The first performance is mid costumes should be 'tuned' and ready by then!


  1. Oh my goodness. She looks adorable! You have done amazing on this...I didn't know you were making something so elaborate! She must be thrilled:))
