Perfect for Mary Poppins!
Date: November 7, 2019
I wore this costume for storybook character day (10/31) at the school I work in, and everyone immediately knew I was Mary Poppins. The details were perfect, especially the parrot umbrella topper for my umbrella. I found a cheap tapestry bag elsewhere, and carried it instead of my regular purse. I also bought a red bow necktie for women, to give it more of a Poppins look. I’m 5’7.5”, about 150 lbs, with an athletic, muscular build. I bought a large because I didn’t want it tight fitting against my chest, since I was wearing it at school/work. I think I could have fit in a medium perfectly. The Large skirt was a bit big in the waist, so I just used a safety pin to tighten it up, and it was well hidden by the jacket, and comfortable. The jacket fit great, not too tight as I wanted, and it was the perfect length on my arms.
