We grew up loving this movie (and of course Johanna Spyri's novel.) When this week's theme was announced, how could we resist?
Pip is our Urban Heidi - look at her curls! She was so excited when we flew her to Switzerland for our photo shoot this week. (we wish - thanks photoshop!)
We actually found this week quite challenging. There are so many great movies out there with amazing costuming but we didn't want to just make a replica of an iconic costume. We wanted to make something wearable - not a dress-up as such but a set of separates that together evoked a sense of Heidi and the Swiss Alps but on their own were perfect to wear to school, to the library, to parties and on play dates.
There are three parts to this week's outfit. To start with , a twirly red skirt, perfect for skipping along and playing in the back lane ( as well as climbing the Swiss Alps, we're sure!)
Our favourite bit of this jacket is the closure. Made of black grosgrain ribbon and brass buttons it reflects Shirley Temple's jacket (in our inspiration picture) but it's a little more modern and up to date.
