A friend wants the Living Dead Dolls Alice Doll costume but it's too small for her and it is only available online so she can't really go into the store to try it out. Also, there's another costume I wanted to try and make, plus also we were both lamenting on the cheap fabric that is used for these costumes. For all intents and purposes these costumes are really meant for one time use. Not to mention, we don't have "traditional" body shapes for these costumes.

Inspired by the Make This Look website, I went searching to see what Simplicity has as far as costumes go.

I was looking at the Simplicity 4136 Wizard of Oz envelope online and took a good look at Dorothy.

It is the Living Dead Alice doll.

Here's what you do:

From what the back of the envelope shows on Simplicity's site, it's looking like Dorothy's dress is all one piece, although in reality it was probably a smock type dress over a shirt.

Make Dorothy's blouse and skirt black. The top part of her dress, the blue gingham over part (I don't know what that is called) make that white, but the band between the top of the dress and the skirt part make black. Get a white apron with black ribbon along the bottom as in the costume and sew that under the black band.

Get a white petticoat and a black satin ribon with a white and red skull like the costume, red and black stockings, red head band, black shoes, and associated make up to complete the look.

I'm seriously considering sending this suggestion to the currator of Make This Look.
