Description

DOROTHY COSTUME

Photography: April Reeves http://www.aprilreevesphotography.com/

Dorothy clicked her heels together three times and whispered “There’s no place like home,” to get back to Kansas. Everyone assumes it’s because she was homesick, but maybe it was because she wanted to go home and have Auntie Em sew some tulle under her blue gingham skirt for Glinda’s Celebration Ball. If you dress your Dorothy in this blue and white cotton gingham dress she’ll be able to stay for the party and twirl with the best of them. This cotton dress is fully lined including the white eyelet sleeves, and the pinafore ties at the shoulders to adjust for comfort. Made from start to finish in our Oregon studio.

All costumes are custom-made to measurements. For our current lead times, please see our shop announcement: www.etsy.com/shop/EllaDynae (Rush orders are available if needed; please get in touch for details).

INCLUDES:

~ Complete dress with attached pinafore & embroidered trim
~ Full Taffeta & Tulle Petticoat (attatched)
~ Full coverage bodice, stretches to fit over the head
~ Ruby slippers not included

FEATURES:

~ Custom Fit with a pattern created just for you
~ Stretchy bodice with room to grow
~ Soft lining throughout including sleeves, No itchiness allowed

Note: Small details will vary due to the custom nature of our products! We are always working to improve our products based on customer feedback and due to this, some details of the dress may vary from the pictures. If you have any questions about the design changes, please feel free to get in touch!

Additional policies

Q: Will the costume be itchy for my child to wear?
A: Every surface that touches skin is lined with soft fabric, because a costume that itches makes everyone grumpy. We also took great care in our choice and placement of tulles, laces and trims with this issue in mind. We even designed the headpieces to be as soft and comfortable as possible. Our test subjects reported no problems with itchiness.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can I wash my Ella Dynae costume?
A: Ella Dynae costumes are made to be as washable as possible, but tulle can lose starch and flowers can unravel, so hand washing and spot cleaning are recommended. Do not dry clean, and feel free to get in touch for washing instructions on specific costumes.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Which size should I order? My daughter is in between or not a standard size.
A: All of our costumes are handmade just for you in our studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut. We offer custom sizes ranging from 12 months to 12 years!

When ordering, please choose a size based on your little one's height!

~ X-Small (toddler up to age 2)
~ Small - up to 38 inches tall
~ Medium - up to 46 inches tall
~ Large - up to 54 inches tall
~ X-Large - up to 60 inches tall
~ Size upgrades are available for heights above 5'0" - Please get in touch for
details!

However, all of our costumes are custom made to measurements. Simply include the measurements below in the comments box during checkout and we'll take care of the rest!

~ Waist to floor in bare feet: Make sure to measure from the same waist point used
when measuring the collar bone to waist
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How long will my costume last?
A: This depends largely on how well it is cared for and how much wear and tear it receives. We opted for fabrics that were a bit more durable and paid careful attention to construction techniques, but the costumes are still made out of satin, velvet, lace, bridal tulle, organdy, etc. and should be treated accordingly to prolong the life of the pieces. If you damage a costume piece you can contact us to purchase replacement pieces.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Where are the costumes made and who makes them?
A: All Ella Dynae costumes are handmade to order in the U.S. in the Ella Dynae studio in Connecticut, by qualified Ella Dynae staff.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Will the costumes be comfortable to play in?
A: All of our young test subjects and models reported a high level of comfort and willingness to play while wearing the costumes. In fact the only problems arose when trying to persuade the models to stop playing in the costumes once the 'official' testing had been completed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are the princess skirts heavy or uncomfortable with the steel hoop in the petticoat?
A: Our test subjects certainly did not find them to be heavy or uncomfortable. The plastic coated steel hoop is securely encased in a strong, but soft casing and swings lightly when you walk, which most girls have a very positive reaction to. The crinoline skirts are not meant for climbing or running, but are lightweight and comfortable to wear for princess activities such as dancing and twirling.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What is included in the shipping cost?
A: Several of the costume pieces are fairly large, so naturally relatively large boxes are required to pack the costumes safely (especially the princess crinolines and wings!). A lot of thought and effort was put into designing the packaging for each costume; we did our best to come up with the safest and most cost effective method to ensure that the costumes reach you in perfect condition. Our shipping costs always include insurance, a tracking number and signed-for delivery.

A: Every costume is specially made to order for each individual customer. Due to this, please allow 6 weeks for the costume to be constructed and packaged (prior to the time required for shipping). Our standard packages are sent via USPS priority and usually take 2-3 business days. Please see our shop announcement for our current lead time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Is there a way to get the costume more quickly?
A: If you are ordering a costume for a special event and need it quickly, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request. In some cases we may be able to send out your costume within a few days. We appreciate your patience and please be assured that we always do our best to create and ship your costumes as soon as possible!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are the costumes safe for a young child to play in?
A: All of our costumes are made of fabrics purchased from certified US textile suppliers and much thought was put into the design and construction of each costume to make them as safe and comfortable to wear as possible. With that in mind, we highly recommend adult supervision when the costumes are being worn, as even something as harmless as a satin ribbon has the potential to be misused. All tiaras and jewelry are not recommended for use by young children without adult supervision.
