My daughter was more into Pippi than modern day shows so I made her a Pippi Longstocking costume. The fun stuff, I used pipe cleaners to shape her braids. I started with one pipe cleaner in one of the 3 strands, then braided as usual, then ended with plain rubber bands. I then spray painted her hair orange with Wal-Mart or dollar tree Halloween hair color.
I then used pencil eyeliner to freckle up her face. Then we went through some old clothes, cut up an old yellow adult size undershirt. I cut most of the back off since the style calls for an apron like dress. Had it over an adult size t-shirt which fits as baggy dress for child. I tore off some old mismatching pockets to serve as functional pockets.
Last, I got some stockings from Wal-Mart (2 pair for mismatch set.) She used my boots for the big shoes, but tied them real tight so they wouldn’t make her fall.
