I would recommend searching through your closet for a colorful printed dress with either plaid, polka dots, checkers, stripes, or something similar. I went with this plaid dress from Shabby Apple (which also doubled as a Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz, costume!).

The most important part of this costume is the wig. You can either buy a wig like I did (special thanks to my mom for altering it until it fit just right), or you can make your own (check out this tutorial!).

Try adding some cute socks like these white ones with red bows. You could also try printed socks (like she did!). Another cute finishing touch is to add freckles to your face using a pencil eyeliner.
