I googled 'dress up box ideas' and found plenty of sites that had great ideas of what to include. So I've put in some of my old clothes; a butterfly top, a skirt, and a couple of dresses (believe it or not I wore the orange one once while I was pregnant with P). I also found a hat and a lei in my hunt through my wardrobe. I think P will love pretending to be a grown up in them.
this tutorial in my googling and thought I could make a wizard's cloak out of some blue velvet trousers I had in my fabric stash (that's why there are so many seams in the finished cloak). The tutorial is fairly self explanatory, but I think I stared at my material for a good half an hour trying to figure out how it would work. I think it was the sleep deprivation at work. Instead of making it reversible I used my roll hemming foot on my sewing machine to hem the cloak. This was a mistake, it appears that roll hemming feet don't like velvet and as a result the cloak has possibly the worst hem in the world. I almost unpicked it and did it by hand, but since it is a dress up costume and I have lost my unpick I just did the best I could. It appears that laziness trumps perfectionism.
