Minnie Mouse

Here are some lovely pictures of a co-worker at the Princess Half-Marathon.  She asked for a jogging skirt and since I had never made one, I thought I’d try.

It was just one length of fabric sized to fit her waist hips with elastic waistband and second gathered length. No pattern just free hand.The request was it be sparkly, comfy and look like Minnie Mouse’s dress. I thought I would try large spots and started appliqueing them.  Only problem was they disappeared into the folds.

Oh well, I love the way it ended up. I think she looks amazing.

I love sewing!
(and yes, I snagged the drawing from a site that sells them, my artist is on strike)
