Ride on the magic school bus!

This past Halloween I went as Ms. Frizzle from “The Magic Schoolbus” – my favourite childhood TV show. Ms. Frizzle always has fantastic dresses adorned with pictures of whatever theme the class will explore that day, and I was really happy to find a print with large sea creatures on it. Not only was the print very Ms. Frizzle-ish, but it also went with the under the sea theme my sister and I had going with our costumes (she was being eaten by a shark).

The dress is just a basic bodice, white collared shirt, and a 3/4 circle skirt with a crinoline underneath. My favourite parts of the costume are the schoolbus buttons on the shirt (made of sculpey) and the little fish on my shoes (sewn from the dress fabric).

Lots of people knew who I was dressed as, and everyone had a good time being nostalgic about the show!

Material Notes
