Check out my new Etsy shop (Tracis Thread)!
I have posted some listings at a great sale price! They were rented once, and some of them were ripped by accident. (This is why I no longer rent costumes!) They have been repaired and cleaned, and actually look more "orphan-like" with a couple more patches on them now. I also listed bloomers to go along with the costume. Of course, I will always take custom orders for my normal price of $50.00 for the dress, pinafore, and scarf. Just send me a note, and I will get back to you as soon as I can!
Added note (as of 09/30/14):
The sale costumes have been sold for quite some time now. I have been side-lined with a hospital stay, and am just now getting back to sewing....just in time for play and recital season!! Yay!!!!
I will be adding new "Orphan Annie" dresses soon to my ETSY shop, and will be open for orders on ETSY and my blog.
Orphan costumes cost $50.00 and include a dress, pinafore, and scarf.
Bloomers are an extra $15.00, if you would like them.
Please drop me a line at my email address (right column) if you have any questions!
Thank you so much to my past, present and future customers!!

I'm working on a tan one like this right now, and another one made out of the remnants from some crib sheets and dust ruffle I made for a client. That one is made from different fabrics, so it's rather cute!
I will post pictures of them when they are finished!
I have had many calls and emails on the prices for the orphan dresses, plus orders that always seem to pile up after January.
Sooooo......here is what I charge for a basic orphan dress:
The costume consists of a dress (lighter fabric), pinafore (several color choices available), and scarf (lighter fabric with patches). This is available for $50.00, plus $5.00 for postage. If you live outside the continental USA, I would charge the actual postage needed to mail the package. For example, I sent one to Australia, which cost more postage, obviously.
Bloomers are also available for an additional $15.00.
