Ki’s school is celebrating “Buwan ng Wika” (National Language Month) and everyone were asked to be in their Traditional Clothes, today. I only have 3 days to find something for the Princess to wear and I’m really not a fan of buying a costume that she’ll only wear for a day. The good news is some of our traditional costumes are still very much reflected in our modern clothes and accessories to with a little bit of scavenging and creativity, I turn this:
into this Igorot costume.
What you need for this costume?
- A native patterned scarf – I’ve sure you have one in your closet, or you can buy a yard or 2 of similar fabric in the market.
- Capiz accessories – There everywhere. You can opt for the cheap faux version or use bead accessories. Just make sure it’s the same color as the scarf you’ll be using.
- Plain white or black shirt.
How to wear it: Put on the shirt then wrap the scarf above the waist. Then put on the accessories and viola!
The Princess won 3rd place for Best in Costume for this.
