Birthday Dress: Minnie Mouse!!

Kota Kinabalu, M...






Little Terror is turning 2 next week, I can’t believe how time has flown! Her favourite cartoon is Disney’s Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and could spend hours propped in front of the TV watching it (I know, that’s bad!). “Oh, Toodles!” was one of the many phrases she could say after she turned 1.

I made her a birthday dress, it’s after one of her favourite characters, Minnie Mouse.

The black piping and buttons really maketh the dress. Oh yes, piping again!

I referenced Simple Simon & Company’s Pleated Collar Tutorial and Craftiness Is not Optional’s Lucky Dress Sew Along (Scoop Detail) to make the bib. But I used pin tucks instead of pleats.

The budding photographer, she was playing with my first digital camera that I bought about 8 years ago, now it’s broken. I cropped out her feet from the pictures because she refused to wear anything other than my old rubber crocs.

    too cute. I also made a Minnie Mouse dress for my daughter, but its not as cute as you daughters dress, I’ll have to give it a go again.

    so cute, both model and dress. My little girl is also a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan, she shouts ‘oh toodles!’ everywhere we go.

    So cute! I bet she’s going to get a lot of use out of it. :)

    Oooo, but the crocs would have made the picture pop! Very cute dress and it is very Minnie! Good job. Gotta love toddlers. At least she lets you take pictures, my preschooler will hardly stand still long enough to get one snapped!
