Recently we went to a themed party. We spent a couple of days deciding what to wear and getting our outfits ready.
My dress was two sizes too big and was the last “Dorothy” costume in the fancy dress shop. I sewed it in with my rudimentary skills honed at junior school, bought some lace, miniature roses and ribbons and made a tacky short dress a bit classier. I teamed it with white knee length tights and a matching hat. Easy! My boyfriend managed to find braces, bandages and our prop, a bucket.
Fancy dress is a good talking point and as soon as you have your costume on you feel jolly!
