Minnie Mouse out on the town

Added Jan 24, 2012

Here is my take on the popular Burda 7494. I didn’t like the idea of a pencil skirt anyway so I made a half circle skirt instead. I love how this turned out! Probably the cutest dress I’ve ever made. I originally bought the spotty fabric to make another Vogue dress like the black one and the yellow gingham ones I made previously, but after seeing JuliaBobbin’s version of this dress it stole my little heart away.

I loved how easy it was to make this dress (not to mention fast!) but I did have some issues with the back of the neckline, but after four attempts to fix it I decided it wasn’t worth bothering about!

More on my blog!

Material Notes

Spotty cotton and white broadcloth :)

    And we have another WINNER!!!! [sound of bell clanging] Yep, this is a “So hot, I’d wear it, and I’m a guy!” material. Congratulations Laikadoll, you’ve outdone even yourself with this one.

    You look gorgeous in this very Mini Mouse dress. Red and white spot is an all time favourite and you have chosen the perfect pattern for the fabric. As always, well done.
