Marching to a distant drum. This soldiers dress uniform consists of a top, trousers, hat and sash. Perfect for many classic books on World Book Day, or even just for brightening up rainy days with some fancy dress.
The bright costume makes the most of the colours of St. George's flag, with the costume being mostly red and white, set off by the formal black of the trousers. The red top has high white cuffs and a centre that is white with gold coloured dress details. The gold colouring is also to be found in the attached epaulettes, and in the sash. The gold theme is also continued in a vertical stripe down the outside leg.
Accessorize the outfit with white gloves (sold separately) and some matching black shoes, no soldier could look smarter in full military regalia. The costume conjures up many historical themes, such as the celebration of great battles like Trafalgar, or the tins soldier in the stories of Hans Christian Andersen.
It could also be used in Christmas parties, as the Christmas Nutcracker .
