This is a dress I made for Halloween.
I will be dressing up as Dorothy from the The Wizard of Oz.
The dress is made from gingham cotton and top pop poplin cotton.
It is a simple bodice with darts on the back, box pleat under the bust, scooped back and a pleated skirt.
I have also ‘glittered’ my own pair of high heels to go with the dress.

I hope that this has given you some ideas on your costume for Halloween 2012 :D
