While filming Easter Parade Fred Astaire’s daughter Ava, and Judy Garland’s daughter Liza met. Ava pointed to her father and told the other girl “That’s my daddy, he dances” to which Liza replied, “That’s my mama, she knits”

Iconic Film Costumes

Judy Garland as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Costumes by Adrian

The Ruby Slippers were regular shoes covered with red satin and lined with cream colored kid leather. There are 2300 sequins per shoe. The leather bow has 46 rhinestones, 42 bugle beads, 3 costume jewels, and there was red felt applied to the soles of the shoes to muffle the sounds of footsteps. 

Her jumper was royal blue and white gingham. The top was tinted a light pink as white didn’t photograph properly underneath the bright technicolor lights. Beneath it, she wore a special corset de-emphasizing her bust and giving her a younger silhouette.
