My 13 year old Daughter gave me one days notice to come up with a Civil War Nurse costume for her social studies class. This is what we came up with. The bottom is a white, denim skirt. It had some nice embroidery on the bottom. I cut it off for another project and hemmed it up. It's a drawstring skirt so we put the drawstring in the back so it looked more like an apron. The bodice part of the apron is the corner of a pillow case we fused the red cross on. The floppy nursed hat is the other corner of the pillow case we turne up for a brim, hemmed the bottom and rounded off the corner. We found the ditsy floral print dress at a thrift store. I thought it turned out pretty cute!
