World Book Day 2020 – Vocabulary Parade! ‘Dauntless’

❀️ World Book Day 2020 – Eleanor’s word is ‘dauntless’ – she thought it best described the character she’s dressed as: Veronica (from Dragon Quest XI – a game on her Nintendo Switch)

I had loads of fun creating the costume! I made the white dress from an old bed sheet and added a zipper and puffy sleeves. I didn’t use a pattern but instead traced the bodice of a dress she already had. I drafted the puffy sleeves based on a drawing I found online. The outer layer (and long hat) were red fleece – which worked well and also kept her warmer on the day!

Overall she was very happy with it and she thought it looked a lot like the character – luckily we found some blonde hair extensions and a clip in fringe in Claire’s Accessories! Which we got away with – thanks to the style of the hat!

Hope you like the results! ❀️
