The Governess

Ok, ok this is my LAST post about the Sound of Music- I promise!! I’m bringing you back to the scene in the movie where Fraulein Maria makes the clothes from curtains. Well, I just had to copy that.

This is the actual pavillion used in the movie where Lisl sings ‘I am 16 going on 17’, it’s now in the grounds of Hellbrunn Castle and absolutely worth visiting if you are ever in Salzburg- the castle grounds are very famous too, so there’s lots to see and do.

I found this green patterned cotton which I thought resembled those infamous curtains, and I created a little frock I think maybe slightly more glamorous that Fraulein Maria’s but hey, it’s Barbie.

  

These shots were taken at Mirabelle Palace and Park, a really beautiful spot close to the centre of Salzburg. You may recognise it as the location where Maria and the children sang ‘Do Re Mi’!

I just had to add this location shot although it doesn’t feature in the movie. Salzburg Castle is truly beautiful and a great spot to explore, it’s high up on a hill and commands fantastic views over Salzburg.

 

After all of your sightseeing adventures stop a while at one of the cafes, enjoy an apple strudel and the take in that view!

Tschuss!
