School is a bit different this year with both of our kids still learning remotely. Nonetheless, our elementary school still held their annual Letterland Parade! This time, it was all virtual, but the kids were still invited to dress up as their favorite character. Our daughter’s choice – Vicky Violet.

DIY Letterland Dress Up Vicky Violet Costume

I had so much fun putting together a quick DIY costume for her. Admittedly, very little was probably seen through the computer camera, but we still dressed her up head to toe as Vicky Violet because why not? And, truthfully, in the middle of this remote learning / pandemic craziness, I needed something normal. In a normal school year, this is what we would do – she would have a full costume for the Letterland Parade. So that is exactly with we did.

Vicky Violet Costume + Inspiration

Here’s how we put together this simple and cute costume. Let us know if you give it a try! We’d love to see.


  • Purple t-shirt
  • Fabric
  • Therm-O-Web Heat n Bond Iron-on Adhesive
  • Plain Headband
  • Faux Flowers
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Vase
  • Purple Tulle Skirt (optional) – ours is Hanna Andersson and was already in her closet.
  • Floral Mary Janes (optional) – ours are Cat & Jack and were already in her closet.


Step 1 Remove part of the flowers and hot glue to the headband for a quick & easy headpiece.
