Reproduction outfit made by female hand in the exact size and measurements as worn by brunette beauty Judy Garland as Dorothy in 1939's The Wizard of Oz.

The three piece outfit from left to right includes a white puffy-sleeved blouse, white petticoat slip and the famous blue-and-white gingham dress.

Judy Garland as Dorothy's original dress and reproduction dress comparison.

The original gingham pinafore dress and blouse has changed color over time with some wear and tear due to age, while the reproduction dress was made to look in brand new condition as worn by teen bombshell Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

The original blouse looks flat and fragile but it once had puffed sleeves back in the day.

If our reproduction dress was available in the 1930's, MGM costumer in Gilbert Adrian would give the tick of approval.

Let's take a peek under Judy Garland as Dorothy's gingham pinafore dress.

The white petticoat slip opens her dress kind of like a cone shape into a beautiful gown. The petticoat slip can be seen when her skirt lifts up in both the Kansas and Oz scenes.

We are still using the dress form for Dorothy's outfit but we'll have a decent mannequin with legs, arms, etc. soon.

A view at the back of Judy Garland as Dorothy's gingham pinafore dress.

The hook and eye closures/fasteners goes from the back bodice down to waistband and the buttock part of the skirt. The snaps on the blouse are hidden from sight. The hook-and-eyes are also hidden when fully closed on the gingham pinafore dress.

Hook-and-eye closures are better quality than zippers and they're also a more secure way to fasten fabric together. These are the reasons why they went with hook-and-eye closures on the original dress in 1938.

Reproduction gingham pinafore dress in Judy Garland as Dorothy's teen size.

Buttons are located at the back bodice of the petticoat slip that goes to the waistband.

There's a gap at the back of the skirt. This helped loosen the skirt a bit for comfort and it's concealed under the gingham pinafore dress.

Unlike women's petticoat slips today how you can just slip them on yourself, this wasn't the case with the ones worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy which required an assistant to do up the buttons.

There are three vertical seams on the skirt of Judy Garland as Dorothy's gingham dress, on each side of the skirt and back of the skirt. There's no seam at the front so the dress looks pretty.

The side seams on the bodice of the gingham dress are not in alignment with the side seams on the skirt which are more forward.

Our reproduction dress match the original dress down to the smallest detail.
