Minnie Mouse Outfit

 Minnie Mouse Outfit

We we going to a birthday party for a little one year old and I did not want to just give a toy or some bought clothes when I have the skills to make something.  I have not sewn many clothes but I though I would try it and I think it came out so cute!!  The little girl loves Disney so I thought I would make a Minnie Mouse inspired outfit.
For the skirt I just took one of my daughter skirts (she is the same age) and traced it while allowing enough seam on the side.  The first one I made I did not leave enough fabric so when I gathered it the waist was way to small.  You would make it almost into a box and just have a slightly wider base then the top. I made two pieces then sewed them together at the seams.  I  then attached elastic to the top and gathered it.  Finally I put on some decorative lace on the bottom just to make it extra cute :)

For the top just used iron on transfer paper made for sewing.  You iron it over the material and then cut it out to the shape that you want it.  I just googled minnie mouse head coloring sheet because it gives a bigger picture usually and then I just traced it off the computer screen.  After cutting it out you just iron it on then reinforce it with sewing. 

This was a clippie that I bought from Etsy and then link is here Nyas Bowtique.  It was only $2.00 plus shipping and she was so great to do a rush order for me!  (Thanks Amy!!!)  I would love to know what you think!!!!!
