Sewing for the School Play

My daughter's kindergarten / first grade class recently put on a play in which there was a golden apple, lots of Greek gods and goddesses, a wedding, and a little mischief.

As with most grade school performances (I would imagine), parents were asked to provide the costumes. And I have to say, everyone looked fabulous.
We decided to go with the classic, ancient Greek chiton, bright fuchsia Umi tennis shoes, and ivy crown. As Hestia, goddess of hearth and home (how perfect is that?), my daughter also chose a broom for her prop. Excellent choice, I think.
The play was a rousing success—standing ovation and all.

Now that the chiton is no longer needed, my three-year-old has requested that we turn it into an astronaut costume. A fabulous idea, don't you think?

Next stop, Jupiter!
