|Ready for a day at Hogwarts.|
|The Real Ginny Weasley|
My youngest daughter is completely crazy for Harry Potter, and has gotten so crazy that she wants to be a Weasley- Ginny Weasley, to be specific, and go to Hogwarts School. She's got the whole ginger haired, freckled look going on, and could be a dead ringer for the actress in the movie- if she only had the Hogwart's Uniform!!
So, she ordered a sweater and tie in the Gryffindor House colors from an online site for an outrageous amount of money. At first they sent her the Slytherin House colors, which just was a horrendous affront to her sensibilities, but they exchanged it at no charge, next day air. They know you don't want to tick off Ginny Weasley!
The price of this get-up was so high that they should have included a skirt and blouse, but they didn't. We checked every major store for a pleated grey skirt, and just couldn't find anything close to what she needed to complete the look.
So, to my pattern stash we went to find the perfect pleated skirt pattern.
