Dorothy Gale

Wizard of Oz

Last Updated: 09-09-2012

I had always wanted a Dorothy costume ever since I was a little girl, now I'm finally fulfilling my dream :-) I searched eBay for 2 hours looking for a good shoe. I managed to find a pair that was brand new and had the french style heel for only $20. The bnous is that they are super comfy Aerosoles!

The sequins were found online after about 4 hours of searching for the perfect ones (5mm transparent red flat sequins). I covered the shoe in red fabric and then hand stitched all the sequins on ONE AT A TIME. There are about 5000 sequins on the pair of shoes. Each row was finished with a secure knot in case a thread should snap. This way I only lose a single row and not the whole shoe's worth of sequins.

The fabrics were the easiest part and came from and my personal stash. I drafted the pattern for the dress on my own while studying stills from the movie and looking at reference images. It came together really easy, the only thing is that the gingham check is too large for the dress. I don't think I feel like making it all over again though.
