Collection of Kids Dress
Many children have character based dress-up clothes. A strong imagination is an important factor in the development of children, so don’t undermine your child’s ability to use his imagination by giving him too many character driven clothes with the associated ready-made stories. One or two character-based outfits of their favorite character is all they need.
The rest of your children’s wardrobe should consist of lots of pieces that they can mix and match from dresses and pants to vests and hats to give them lots of pieces to use. However, while giving your child a variety of items is important, it is not necessary to deplete your finances when supplying them with dress-up clothes.
Free Clothes for Dress-Up
The cheapest place to find dress-up clothes is in your own wardrobe. Most people have clothes they keep out of nostalgia. A cute dress that you are fond of but no longer wear could make an ideal foundation for dozens of costumes. An old shawl can serve many purposes. It can be a shawl, a head wrap, a baby blanket, an apron. Grandpa’s old suit will certainly make the adults smile.
A thrift store is a great place for dress-up clothes. Many thrift stores have discount days for their clothing. Shopping on these days will save you a lot of money on play clothes.
Don’t worry if second-hand dress-up clothes are too big. Your children don’t care. The only modifications you should make are those needed for safety. For example, an overlong dress can be cut to a safer length and hemmed.
