I wanted to do this costume for a long time!! It ended up being a pretty easy homemade Pippi Longstocking costume.

Putting Together Pippi

I had the boots, Target knee socks -two different colors, of course. Then I picked up a women’s green henley and yellow t-shirt at Goodwill. I also grabbed a plaid button down shirt along with it.

First, I cut the yellow shirt into an apron. Then I cut the plaid shirt for the pockets and glued them on the yellow apron. Next, I put the green and yellow shirts over a slip that she had. In addition, I bought a Mr. Nillson the monkey at the dollar store.

In order to create Pippi’s hair, I used a wire hanger to bend to her head. Then I braided around the wire ends. I finished up with an orange hair spray and perfectly placed drawn on freckles.
