Liddy has the role of 'Sleepy the Dwarf' and Mrs Wandel suggested pyjamas as a costume.
Although the original pj pattern the Bedtime Story are by far my favourite, we both agreed the Sleepover pyjamas are more 'retro' and looked right!
Liddy found the fabric she wanted in Spotlight and requested white cuffs and facing.
I made up a pattern for a night cap, its not perfect but a milliner I aint.
Elsa donated a shiny gold bell.
I used some star shaped mother-of-pearl buttons for some on stage sparkle.
These may have to removed (before being used for slumber) if they are scratchy.
I continued the buttons over the shoulder.
The beard came as a downloadable PDF from here.
My sewing gal pal Britters sniffed it out for me.
The beard has a felt backing as the faux fur was nasty cheap stuff and a bit scritchy.
I simply glued the two together.
It worked well.
We went with elastic to hold it in place.
Easier then ribbons for a 10 year old.
One Sleepy the Dwarf.
Channeling Hercule Poirot?
How she will appear on stage.
(She came up with the idea of wearing knee pads under her pj bottoms)
You are yawning now, aren't you?
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go.......
Did I mention Hugo's costume?
