The skirt is a plain one slightly gathered at the waist. The bottom is fluted on the edge, turned up about 3 inches and the edge fluted again. Six large petals are sewed at the waist line. They may be wired or not as preferred. The entire waist is covered with rows of pointed leaves. They may be cut separately or in rows and pasted in place.

The hat consists of a ruffle of crepe paper pasted to a band of cardboard that fits around the head. Six wired petals are pasted around the edge for a brim.

An unusual touch is given by the tiny Daffodil bracelets. They are made just like the hat, but on straight bands that are tied around the wrists.
