It's a Hard Knock Life! I happen to be a music teacher and this year we are putting on Annie Jr.. My two girls are in the show too and we have been busy creating costumes for them and the others in the play. My youngest is Pepper, the mean orphan. Here she is on the swing in her bloomers and patched jumper. My oldest daughter is a servant for Mr. Warbucks. She and the other servants have to match, so I sewed 6 aprons for the show. I created a simple apron pattern that uses only 1 yard of fabric. We are having them wear black dresses under the aprons. The aprons tie in the back along the waist and neck. I was hoping they would need my help for the Annie Dress but no luck this time. I love making aprons. We even had the orphans choosing their own patches. So much fun!
