Description

This costume was made as a birthday present for a niece. Only the T-shirt/dress is RTW.
I adjusted the apron pattern to fit a child, I thought, but it still turned out too big. So I will have to make some adjustments to the velcro on the straps.
The socks are actually leg-warmers, made from thick, adult, tights. I cut off the toe- and panty-parts and used the coverlock to hem.
The garters are made of 38 or 40mm wide elastic and 2 types of suspender clips.

    What a fun costume! I remember Pippi from when I was a girl. I had her as a paper doll with friends. Gosh that brings back memories.
