My son always loved to watch Mary Poppins so therefore we had the idea to dress all the family in a Homemade Mary Poppins Family Costume following the theme.
For Mary: I was sewing myself with my mum's help the skirt (blue, adding light violet ribbon) and I have adjusted the collar of an existing old sleeping shirt of my grandmother full of laces. I was lucky because I have a dark blue coat looking, ankle boots and white gloves.
As hat I used a children cowboy, taking away the star and applying some daisy and cherry bought in a home decor shop. The difficult part was making the umbrella, then I recalled the talent of my father on working the wood. So he transformed a wood-salad spoon in a perfect parrot that I have painted and we applied on an expensive black umbrella.
Bert and little sweepers: My husband took is wool back jacket, black pants and I bought him a hat as well for my 2 year little son that wears a big short over a duvet jacket because we had a lot of snow. The baby on my husband's backpack wears a black t-shirt over his warm overall and a wool hat (her dummy is also attached with a black ribbon!) and everybody is full of ash!
We had a wonderful day and mostly our little son really thought to live for a day on a Mary Poppins adventure!

I had planned on Being Mary Poppins for a long while and began the hunt for items (SPOT ON DETAILS). Going to antique stores are helpful. We found the hat which was plain and glued the berries and flowers on, as well as the gloves. The carpet bag jacket at Burts hat were purchased at a second hand store. I made the skirt to be the perfect fit, color and lenght with an easy sew pattern. My shirt was the most difficult, but doable. Find a white dress shirt and flip the colar inside out, sew it down and add lace for the victorian effect. The chimney sweep was made with a stick and pipecleaners from an antique store.
Enjoy making your own Homemade Mary Poppins and Bert Couple Costume!
I started to make a costume for my dogs for Halloween and my idea was penguins. Shortly after I started the project I just couldn’t stop. Hence I made a Mary Poppins costume for the 3 of us to hand candy out to all the kids that came to our door.
It is a blast to Make Your Own Mary Poppins Costume! I hope you enjoy.
