B4320 Dorothy dress

I still can’t quite believe that the movie, The Wizard of Oz was made in 1939! I made this Dorothy dress for my daughter for World Book Day, which is being celebrated at her school this coming Friday. A week later than the official date but that suited me just fine and gave me time to get hold of the pattern. Of course I probably could have drafted a pattern myself but I really appreciate how this is constructed. The waistband, the straps and the top band of the bib are all interfaced and faced and hand finished on the inside. It was quite time consuming considering that it is basically a gathered skirt with a bib and straps but I’m really pleased with the result and moreso that my daughter loves it!

    Hm. If you were going for the book instead of the movie, she needed silver shoes instead of red…
