Finally the Wiggles have come to New Zealand. I'm not sure who was more excited, the girls or me (I think me hehe). I've been waiting for the Wiggles to come to NZ since I became a mama and I certainly wasn't disappointed - it was a great show.
Keeping to tradition of being a procrastinator - the night before the show I decided the girls needed something special to wear to the show. So I went stash diving and pulled out some wiggles fabric and just a plain white poplin.
The pattern that I used was the Portrait Peasant Dress designed by CarlaC aka "the scientific seamstress" - It was really quick to sew up. I love how Carla has given so many possibilities for the top/dress and explains all directions clearly. This would be a perfect pattern for a beginner as the instructions are thorough.
Izzy chose Dorothy and she decided that Em wanted to be Henry (good old big sister talking for the younger non talking sibling)
This was my first attempt at Applique and I'm not keen on repeating the experience - it was so fiddly (especially at 11pm at night - I really should start thinking of these projects sooner than the day before they are needed)
Here's an after the show shot - food, show purchases and waiting for our chauffeur aka Dad
