The youngest son did a fantastic job in his Junior High school play a couple weeks ago. He was Toto. He barked & growled in the right spots, he played with ruby slippers & giant balls of yarn left by the wicked witch’s cats, and he unmasked the Wizard of Oz and brought down the house!
After the Toto suit was sent to school, I was entrusted with making Dorothy’s dress. For being a “simple” costume, it sure was time-consuming & frustrating to sew. Actually, it started frustrating me with the cutting out of so many pieces on the bias! (fortunately, my largest bias-tape maker helped out in the many-yards-long band around the skirt…)
We are so happy our sons are part of the arts program at their school! (…that means ya gotta stay posted – imma be braggin’ on the other son’s marching band, next…)
