This is a costume that I made for the Nativity play at the nursery where I work. The little girl playing Mary had to be 'riding' on a donkey, and pretending to knit at the same time, so I (stupidly) volunteered to make a donkey costume that she could wear hung from her shoulders.

I've actually just come and read my comment back and it doesn't sound too good. I wasn't worried the shirt wouldn't look good, I was worried that you wouldn't like it...make more sense now?
