I'm making one this year as well. I was going to try to make a circular skirt (which would have been prefect) but found out the length didn't work with the fabric available. So I'm making a skirt with three pieces, a front piece and two back pieces because I decided to use buttons instead of elastic. I'm using broadcloth for most of it. For the shirt, I'm going to try Goodwill since peasant tops were popular not too long ago.
I'm trying to decide if I want to carry around a glass bottle for milk or if I want to make it out of paper mache. I figure if I make it out of paper mache I can make a hole in the back and store things in it.
