The Minnie Dress

Added Aug 2, 2013

Placentia, Calif...






I’ve made this dress from Butterick’s 5029 retro pattern before. However, I gave that dress to my sister. I decided to make this one and keep it forever. I like the fit better and knowing how the pattern worked the first time I made a few changes. I didn’t line the entire bodice. Just the bust part. Plus I didn’t cut so much fabric for the skirt portion. It was just to full! Anyways, I like this Minnie Mouse fabric and so I named it the Minnie dress. Such an easy, fun dress to make.

Material Notes

1.5 yards of cotton, 14 inch zipper, thread




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Romantic

      Thank you! I think this second one is definitely better than the first one. I feel like a classy lady in this dress.
