Twinkle Toes also braved a try-out for the play. She got the supporting role of Gretel. We had a little costume in our dress up box that was a hand-me-down from long ago. It was far too small for Twinkle Toes. But we took it in. The directors pounced on it, "That's exactly what we want!" We took it in to the seamstress, with new fabric. Without a pattern, she made an exact replica to fit Twinkle Toes.
