this was really fun to read and see the different versons of the dress, i've heard of the corset they made her wear, during filming and honestly i think its unnecessary, but your dresses are perfect, you can't even tell them apart from the original.

The corset is necessary because the blouse is see-through, you don't want to see her cleavage. 

The materials we used are the same for the gingham dress and blouse but we know what we need to do in order to make future dresses perfect.

Even small minor details matters, that's why we are very good costume makers and ruby slipper makers.

oh true i didn't think of that, with the corset and all, but the design of the dress is stunning nonetheless.

Back in those days, corsets were commonly worn with dresses like these.

Yeah, unless MGM made the blouse with thicker fabric, you could see what is under there. Smiley

Other costume makers these days don't use the same thin fabric as the original blouse, which is why our blouse and dress is 100% accurate to the original dress as worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy.

I love the Dorothy dress. The dress is absolutely beautiful, the blue and white checks make the dress stand out.

yeah i get the corset thing now but making her look young with that type of amazing voice was odd to me, Judy didn't like it either

She had to look a few years younger than her actual age otherwise she wouldn't have got the part of Dorothy, which she desperately wanted.

Sometimes these things happen in Hollywood movies. Ralph Macchio playing a younger Daniel LaRusso in The Karate Kid series in the 80's is an example. He was already in his 20's in the first series when he played as a "kid".

i understand, that must have been why MGM wanted Shirley Temple as the first choice.

Shirley Temple had the young age on her side but she would have been a disaster for The Wizard of Oz.

At the end of the day, they wanted someone who could sing and Judy Garland had the voice. She showed her acting talents and singing abilities in prior movies so she was already a star on the rise. She was so right for the part of Dorothy.

yeah, Shirley was pretty good, but Judy garland was a better talent in my opinion, she was pretty much perfect for the role.
