Well, wife of Zeus in the school play, anyway.
Regular readers may remember that I have made a LOT of costumes for school plays over the years. This year I made tunics for 15 villagers in the Christmas nativity so when Tall Small came home with a request for just one costume, I was very pleased. Particularly when I read that as Hera, it was suggested she wear a full length gold dress and a tiara. Just the kind of challenge I enjoyed and while I did have to buy the gold fabric (and let me tell you, cheap gold satiny stuff is the very devil to sew) I already had everything I needed to make her tiara. One very pleasurable evening's work produced this:
And another evening of sewing resulted in the full costume.
I was very pleased with this outfit, as was my lovely daughter, though I wasn't prepared for how grown up she would look with her crown on and her hair loose - and I also wasn't expecting her to be singing in a little group of 4, or doing a small dance. She had told me "she only had 4 lines" - talk about modesty!
