Dungaree Costume Ideas for Book Characters
Dressing as a favourite book character is a popular activity in Infant and Primary schools to celebrate World Book Day which falls on Thursday 6 March this year.
At Dungarees Online we often get people buying dungarees/bib-overalls for fancy dress as well as fashion and there are various book characters who are known for wearing dungarees.
