Anything but clothes...

... was the dress code for my daughter's rag week costume day today.  And she really pulled it out of the bag by making herself an actual dress out of superhero wrapping paper!  Really?  What a brilliant idea, I thought, so I had to share it with you.  Here she is packing her bag for school, could you even believe it's paper?

I made her a little hairband out of the same paper and a tiara band at the last minute too.  And by the way, don't worry, she had a little outfit out of actual fabric on underneath too!



  1. That is a brilliant idea and she looks wonderful!

  2. Oh my goodness, the talent really runs in the family. A stunning make and she looks gorgeous in it.

  3. Your daughter is SO clever and she looks amazing in her wrapping paper dress! Vicky x

  4. That is AMAZING!!!!!!! Obviously the creative gene runs strong in the family :) She looks absolutely stunning in it!!!!! Was there sewing involved???? I'm so curious how she made it!

    Thank you for your lovely compliments! My daughter was delighted to read them, and has agreed to do a little "guest post" to tell you how she made it - watch this space...
