Spring jacket

... or actually,  an elephant costume that will also have to serve as a spring jacket/ vest.

They've been doing a cinema project at school watching and reenacting 'The Jungle Book'. As a big surprise (or present to her mom) she didn't choose to be the girl in the village, but one of the elephants.

Of course, a girl elephant with leggings and a jacket that could almost be a dress. And (very important!) a jacket with a hood to hide her long hair. Because Colonel Hathi has a tendency to just cut off long, unruly hair. Do you remember the elephant parade? I couldn't get enough of watching her practice her part. Too sweet.
