Costume Fun - Dame Nellie Melba

In the last week of school, Alannah had a special lunch with a request for them to dress up as a famous Australian, and preferably one from the early 1900's.

When my hubby mentioned Dame Nellie Melba, and then showed her who it was, her decision was made, so 1 Dame Nellie Melba costume was required and quickly (we only had a few days notice!).

Thanks to a very costume-making-savvy sister, and some sewing skills, we came up with this, which flowed over a floor length white satin pretty...

The bustle was my favourite bit!

Lana was one happy (and glamourous!) chick.
