This is an exact reproduction of Judy Garland as Dorothy's iconic blue-and-white checked gingham pinafore dress, made by the lovely Miss MaryAnne.

Work is still in progress and it's not finished yet, but this dress will soon link up with Judy Garland's ruby slippers. These are some of the best and highest quality old Hollywood costumes connected with Miss Garland you'll ever see.

The belt clinches in to show her waist, and the top of the dress is a bit wider to make room for her bust. There's a hidden pocket on the right side seam of the dress to store her handkerchief for crying scenes in The Wizard of Oz, and there's also a separate white underskirt like the originals to give her dress some bounce and volume.

Judy Garland as Dorothy's gingham pinafore dress wouldn't be complete without a white petticoat slip.

This garment under the dress is custom-made from cotton muslin, and is visible throughout the movie.

Our stunning dress is finished and more detailed photos later, but this is a Miss MaryAnne reproduction of the iconic blue and white gingham pinafore dress over a white puffy-sleeved blouse, as worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

This is the kind of dress made for a princess such is its beauty. A very vintage appeal of Dorothy's dress that is one of, if not the most well known outfit in movie history.

This beautiful dress as worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, is the most accurate reproduction you will ever see, paying careful attention to detail.

Made exactly in Judy Garland's measurements, her dress also has important features such as a hidden right pocket, and closing at the back with vintage "hook and eyes", as well as vintage buttons on the belt.

This is the kind of 1930's style dress that you need help to wear it because you can't close the back of the white blouse and dress on your own.

The blouse is very sheer and delicate like the originals, so we always handle it with care. It's so fine that you can see through it to the corset that MGM Studios made Judy Garland wear to keep her breasts down flat.

They say pretty girls look good in anything, and wowee Judy Garland is certainly one. She was born to wear this stunning gown.

Judy Garland as Dorothy's blue-and-white cotton gingham pinafore dress and blouse. Very cute teen dress made to fit her perfectly.

Detailed exactly like the original dress Judy Garland as Dorothy wore in the movie, the collar and sleeves are detailed with blue rickrack.

This dress is for display and it is not available for sale. We will take some photos with the ruby slippers before the slippers head off to their new home in America at the end of March.

At the back of the dress consists of old fashion hook and eye closures like the originals.

Judy Garland as Dorothy wore a corset under the shirt, and that's the only piece missing from our display. We need to purchase it in her size.

We have a beautiful corset that fits Judy Garland as Dorothy perfectly. This garment will be included as part of her dress.

MGM Studios made Judy Garland wear a corset for her role as Dorothy which covers her from the bust to hip, intended to give her the perfect childlike figure.

We have attached a white corset to Judy Garland as Dorothy's dress. You can see the top part of the corset through her thin blouse, just like in the movie.

This dress is beautiful and that completes the costume set, however MaryAnne will make some minor adjustments.

Another look at a copy of the most beautiful and iconic dress that Judy Garland wore in her lead role as Dorothy.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at this dress, just love Judy Garland and love anything associated with her. This isn't the final dress because top costume maker in MaryAnne will do a bit of tweaking to make the dress look even better.

A final look at Judy Garland's hot outfit before the changes are made. We will have basically a version 2 gingham dress and blouse, still in Judy Garland's size and measurements soon!

I apologize for the lack of updates on this thread, I haven't abandoned it and I'm sure people have been waiting patiently to see the new Dorothy dress.

It will still be made, but in mid 2016 because the costume maker has been very busy with her new home.

The good news is that she is still committed to getting the job done, I will provide further updates if there's any changes to the middle of the year schedule.

We now own two beautiful gingham pinafore dress and blouse. The first dress is on a mannequin, and our new dress is on a white clothes hanger which is why it looks a bit awkward.

MaryAnne did a wonderful job with both dresses, we appreciate everything she's done but since it took her a while to make the second dress she forgot to fix something that we requested so unfortunately we are back to square one.

The petticoat slip and blouse is right but the actual gingham dress is a bit off and we need to fix some minor issues with it. We are perfectionists when it comes to the costume worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy and that reflects on the way we craft our ruby slippers.

We have decided to make the appropriate changes to the dress on the white clothes hanger ourselves, we feel this is the only way we will be happy. We have the base dress and a sewing machine and we need to order the fabric. We just have to find time to work on the dress and that's the problem because we are behind schedule with our ruby slippers, so the dress will need to be put aside.

Below is a before and after photo of one of our dresses that we fixed.

The width of the strip on the belt is larger, and we moved the pointy end of the shoulder straps just below the belt slightly like the original dress.

This is an exact reproduction of Judy Garland's dress in her size with the hidden right pocket for her handkerchief and see-through white blouse. Underneath the dress is a white slip to give the dress some spread like we see throughout The Wizard of Oz movie. We didn't include the corset.

Perfection matters to us and we will get better with more practice. Keep an eye out for some new Dorothy gingham dresses in the near future.
