Another Queen Esther dress -
this one much more carefully constructed than last years!
The bodice is velvet from a skirt I found on the street.
The lace sleeves are from a shirt
handed down by a friend.
The lace was donated by another friend
who cut it off her skirt
and thought I could use it.
The skirt bits I DID buy as oddments from the scrap bin at my local fabric shop.... so the entire outfit cost me 20NIS.

...And the crown she made herself.


  1. What a great crafty outfit!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I'm completely excited that I have a reader who lives in Israel..and a former Alaskan at that! I have wanted to visit Israel since as long as I can remember. How long have you lived there?

  2. I grew up in Naknek in Bristol Bay, since my dad's Alaskan Aleut. But my mom's Jewish, and in the early 90's we moved (the whole fam) to Israel. Now when you do come you know someone to visit! =0)

  3. Wow, what a completely unique and interesting heritage! I've never been to Bristol Bay...there are so many parts of the state that I'd love to visit.

    So glad to have made a new blog friend halfway around the world. :)
