Great job! That's a super looking costume. Does DD have ruby slippers? :)

Great Dorothy costume. I made this for myself several years ago and I wear every year. I found some red patent Mary Janes on sale and painted them with red glitter to make my ruby slippers. Your costume is much better looking than mine. It was one of my first clothing projects. Job well done!

That is so cute! That bias insert sounds tricky, This really looks great. All that she needs is Toto, but the owner of the two eyes hiding under the table probably wont go along.

Hey, great minds think alike! My niece is going as Dorothy too, complete with the little basket and ruby slippers and even Toto! :o) I'm sure her costume isn't as nice as this one, though, as she bought it somewhere. :o) Very cute!

Peggy, I caught the Dorothy flavor even from the tiny thumbnail photo in the Review Gallery - so authentic! Your DD looks absolutely charming. How nice that she asked you. Lovely, Lily

Thanks for the comments - DD bought her wig and Toto from someone on ebay. This whole costume came about because of her awesome red shoes. I hope she gets a better picture on Halloween. And Becki, I didn't even notice her cat hiding under the table.

What a great mom! I hope DD had a good time at the party - she probably had the BEST costume. It must be fun to work somewhere they actually do things like that!

Hi Peggy, Your dorothy dress looks fantastic! I was hoping you'd be able to help me with something; I own this pattern and want to use the 'glenda the good witch' as a base for a fancy dress costume but i got my pattern out the other day and found that i'd lost the pattern piece for the skirt. I know the dimensions as i can measure my dorothy dress, but i need the dimensions of the point that gets cut out the front on the glenda costume. Is there any chance you could tell me how far across and down that curve goes on the pattern piece so i can draft myself a new one? I know you don't know me, but i'm hoping you'd be able to do me this huge favour.

Looks great! My 27 year old DD has asked me to make this for an office party! She has a blouse that will work and only needs the apron. Any thoughts - do you remember enough to guess whether or not that would work?

You are half-way there. I would make the gingham as a jumper
