EDIT:  Added new photos from Dragon*Con 2012  Grin  I finally finished the shoes 100% and got a little basket with Toto in it.

I figured I should post the dress that goes with my shoe post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=395794.0 I made a while back.
I had always wanted this costume, ever since I was 6 and saw WoOZ for the first time.  Out of all the years of costume making I have done, I don't know why I waited until last year to finally make it.


While I did make this around Halloween, it was not strictly a Halloween costume, it will be coming to Dragon Con 2012 too ;-)  If I had a $1 for every person who asked me where Toto was that night, I could have retired and done nothing but make costumes for the rest of my days lol.  I do have a Toto dog somewhere, but when we moved last year, he got packed up and I think he's in storage.
I tried to make it as accurate as I could, but realized too late that my checks on the gingham were too large.  This was a relatively easy costume to make.  I draped the whole thing on my dress form and then drafted pattern pieces out of that for a better fit.  While I was making it, I was watching WoOz for inspiration and for costume notes ;-)

Here's my page with my progress and some info

It looks great. I think the poofiness of the skirt and sleeves help to make you look more little girly.

The poofiness was actually the wind blowing up my skirt lol  It was one windy parade *oops*
