We talked the boss into being Snow White. Now, we need to clothe seven dwarfs.

I'm striking out on searches for seven tunics. Tent dresses doesn't seem to get me much farther. Ideas on where to find plain tunics in a variety of colors/sizes? We're all set on the beards, hats, ears, etc.

Garb The World can make simple tunics in lots of colors and levels of detail. If you need in-stock items they have less colors but plenty of sizes.

Would you consider getting some felt-type fabric from a fabric store, and just cutting a long rectangle with a hole in the middle for the head? It would be easy enough to do, and then you could just wrap a belt around the outside.

If you know anyone who can sew a straight line and you're willing to put in a couple hours of work, here's a quick and dirty tunic tutorial.

I was thinking about this, and it seems to me that a nightshirt like this might work for just about everyone.

Are any of the dwarves going to be played by women?

Victoria's Secret has a bunch of tunic tops on sale, including a few for for $9.99 each, and lots more styles and colors at 2/$40. Could be bought oversized or worn with leggings instead of tights, etc.

I believe dressing gowns are an acceptable substitute for tunic in 7 dwarf costumes.
