DISCLAIMER - Each and every garment is individually created at the time of your order and thus I am unable to make “Identical” costumes. I will do my best to create a replica of the original Helen Keller outfit, created from the original pattern I drafted in August of 2005, but because of the individuality of each order, garment, and child's size, there are no two garments made alike.


Underdress Fabric no longer available.

Lower Cost Helen Keller Outfit Here

The lower cost one is made of a more in-expensive cotton, and does not have the hand set ruffle/rouching around the collar and cuffs, and no same fabric piping in seams. Fabric color choices are as close to the color request as possible, but will be what I can obtain locally without ordering a special fabric. Please specify two color choices for the main dress when ordering.
