[b]Instructions:[/b]

[b]Step 1:[/b] This step is all about the dress the [url=http://costumzee.wpengine.com/tag/dorothy/]Dorothy costume[/url] needs to be. Dorothy had a white dress under the apron. This should be a simple dress in the country style of the fifties. A great pattern to have would be an Amish style dress or a farm dress. These will be the most accurate.

[b]Step 2:[/b] The costume is not complete without the apron. The apron is all blue made as a simple jumper style. You can make it a jumper or just the apron. In the movie it was more of an overlay over the white dress.

[b]Step 3:[/b] The Ruby slippers are going to tell everyone you are Dorothy, so don’t forget these. If you have an old pair of shoes you can buy some red hot material and sequins to pattern the ruby slippers. You don’t have to buy new in the glaring red.

[b]Step 4:[/b] This is the accessory stage. Dorothy had long brown hair in two pigtail braids. If your hair is long enough you can take matching blue ribbon and tie two bows. Otherwise you can find a wig that is can be braided or that is braided to create the hair style.

The wicker basket and a fake Toto will need to be other accessories for your costume. If, you have a real dog than add him or her to the mix. Dorothy was never without either and they are essential.
