My Children have to dress up as People from ww1. I don't want to spend a fortune on some thing that can be worn for an hour. Have any of you purchased good costumes from any where cheap or idea's of where to buy things to do it myself at home. Many thanks.

How about dark school pants, a white/off white shirt and a vest for a boy?
If you have a daughter you could dress her up as a voluntary nurse? Skirt, plain blouse and an apron?

Looks like the boy can get away with a flat cap and braces on trousers, waistcoat and shirt
Girls look like frilly dresses and a straw hat would do, both wearing lace up boots if you can
