It’s Friday, it’s time to recreate some outfits from the books! Thanks to Kim at What Claudia Wore for the descriptions and the inspiration!
#110 – Abby the Bad Sport
“Claudia often wears her art on her sleeve – almost literally. On this, my first Monday back at the BSC, for example, she was in a little crop-top muscle shirt that she had batikked green and blue. She’d sewed a bunch of buttons up the front as if it were a vest. She also had on skinny black shorts, one blue sock and one green sock, and black Doc Martens with one blue shoelace (on the foot with the green sock) and one green shoelace (on the foot with the blue sock). Her long black hair had been gathered into a single braid. A blue ribbon with more buttons attached to it was woven into the braid. Her earrings? Buttons, naturally.”
(This outfit has also been recreated wonderfully by Entropificus here.)
#68 – Jessi and the Bad Baby-Sitter
“For example, today she was wearing an oversized white shirt under a black vest covered with a design of shiny beads. (She sewed the beads on it herself.) She wore neon green leggings and black ballet slippers (on which she’d sewn a matching bead design). From one of her pierced ears hung a dangling earring made from the same beads and on the other ear she wore a small green hoop earring. It was an original look that only Claudia could make work.”
Mystery #11: Claudia and the Mystery at the Museum
“That Sunday, my hair was in a long braid hanging down one side of my head, with red ribbons threaded into it. I was wearing a red-and-white striped shirt that hung down almost to my knees, red leggings, and black high-top sneakers. Even though I wasn’t planning on going anywhere that afternoon, I had put some thought into my outfit. That’s just the way I am.”
