A preschool asked for different cultural costumes, including European, and I was pleased to get creative.
This all-in-one bodice, skirt and apron slips on easily as it is open right down the back with just one piece of velcro on the bodice to close. It is shown here worn over a white knit top.
It reflects the traditional costumes of various European countries - Swiss, German etc. As that is where many of our fairytales are set, this dress could be Gretel, Red Riding Hood, Cinderella (before the ball), or any other peasant female character.
