My mom actually made me this Mary Poppins costume. My nieces and nephews were watching Mary Poppins and while the song Jolly Holiday was playing my mom said to me “I bet you have always wanted that dress” I told her she was right. Next thing I knew she had whipped up the dress for me.
I have been compared to Mary Poppins more than once in my life, I like to think it’s because I am also “practically perfect in every way” but I fears it more because we both have sassy tongues “I never explain anything”.
It’s a Jolly Holiday
I wore my costume to a Halloween carnival and got lots of compliments and even ended up singing to a little girl who was eating lunch by us. Another little girl didn’t know who I was but she was in awe and thought I was a princess. My mother is an amazing seamstress I am so lucky to have her.

I am so inspired by other costumes on this site. This Mary Poppins and Bert couple make my heart sing like Mary would!
This five year old really is practically perfect in every way. You can see how much she loves being Mary! It’s so sweet.
DIY Costumes With a Spoonful of Sugar
This costume is total family goals. The details are incredible. What’s even better is that Jeanna’s mom created all these looks. The love of a mom with a sewing machine knows no bounds! It makes me so happy to see other moms having the same traditions as mine.
One More Mary Poppins and Bert Costume
I love Bert dressed up as a chimney sweep. The only thing that might be better is when he was covered in musical instruments, but I’m not sure how practical that costume would be! Check out how this cool couple made their costume here.
