For New Year’s Eve, we threw an ‘M’ themed party. We asked all our guests to come dressed as things starting with the letter ‘M’. It was a great night, and I am going to show you my ‘thrown-together from things I owned’ Mary Poppins Outfit.
I made a bowtie out of red felt, attatched to my shirt with a safety pin. I had this full circle skirt from Mama Pigeon that she wore back in the 80’s. I claimed a tape measure and a spoon and voila! Outfit complete.
I must stress that I didn’t require a brolly, coat, scarf and hat, because the party was at my very own warm house…. so I took inspiration from the nursery scene, where she begins unpacking her bag.
This could easily become a couples costume – throw you other half in a white shirt and black trousers and paint him a dirty face, pop him on a flat cap…hullo Bert!
