Description

Dorothy From The Wizard of Oz, I wanted the red shoes so naturally Dorothy was the only option for my fancy dress costume.
I adapted an already ajusted pattern based a burda style pattern from10/2010 dress 116.
Making it strapless and redesigning the skirt only keeping the idea for pockets.
I moved the zip to the side and added straps.
For the top I added sleeves to a white t-shirt.

Gingham Cotton
White Cotton fabric
Zip 20inches
2 white buttons 1inch
