  1. I think quite franticly I would just panic, I its a very english thing to do this fancy dress. As an american all I can think of is halloween. lol I am so nervous that when Buba starts school and MM what will I do, how will I know what its appropriate and what is not, a witch to a birthday part maybe not. hahahah So I will see what advice you get and learn from you! Good luck sorry I am not more help my darling. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. #sharewithme

  2. Personally I’d just buy something. For people that are super handy with a sewing machine or needle & thread then fine make. For me it’s a talent I don’t possess or have the time or inclination to learn… We’ve just bought our almost 5yo an Elsa dress for her birthday and I know she’ll absolutely LOVE it!

    Good luck xx #MMWBH

  3. I think either go with cinderella (most Disney fairy tales are based on original books so in my opinion that counts) or buy something. Or, my neighbour had this recently for her 6 yr old and they dressed her as Gretel from Hansel & Gretel, all she really needed was a cute pinafore dress (I think she adapted a longer skirt, but could you buy one?) plaited pigtails and a basket, for dropping breadcrumbs. Not sure if that helps at all but good luck! xx #mmwbh

  4. If you have time you can make one and you can really choose the character that you like. if its me though I would go the easy route and buy something from the store (we live near a costume store – how lucky!) and add some personal touch just so even if its store bought its still unique to your daughter =) #MMWBH

  5. I am terrible with costumes but the worst thing us when the school only give you about 2 days notice! My daughter’s class are doing the Lion King as their end of term production do currently looking out for lion coloured clothes. #MMWBH

  6. This is SO hard. I hate fancy dress at the best of times. I feel your pain on the bought or made! As a teacher I LOVE to see kids come in costumes that have been cobbled together by their parents to show they’ve thought about it and talked about it and done their best – I’m less keen on someone digging out their Batman costume from the bottom of the toy box . . . HOWEVER as a Mummy? Ben went to school on World Book Day dressed as Batman . . . cos he wanted to.

  7. I would love to be able to make my own fancy dress outfit, but I am still such a noob at this whole sewing lark, I know I’d cock it up…ROYALLY! lol. So easier to buy something! 😉 Thanks so much for linking up with #MMWBH xx
