Minnie Mouse Inspired Outfit

For our daughter's birthday we took her to the happiest place on earth!! Yes, you guessed right! Disneyland, it was her very first time!
I really wanted to make her a special outfit. I didn't want the traditional princess dress, I wanted to be comfy yet stylish. I remembered I had the perfect white polka dot on red it reminded me of Minnie Mouse's classic outfit. I figured I'd paired it with this tiny black polka dots on white sheer fabric.


Since the weather would be warm I figured an off the shoulder crop top would be perfect. I had purchased the Coachella shorts PDF pattern from Striped and Swallow a while ago and I thought this be the perfect match with the crop top. I had been wanting to work with pom pom trim so I added them to the shorts and they made it look fun. The outfit didn't take long to cut and sew it was very straight forward. I definitely want to make more Coachella shorts using different fabric combos. My daughter really liked it but felt shy showing her belly so I would probably not make more crop tops.

I DIY'ed her Minnie Mouse ears, since I wanted the bow to match her outfit. I bought simple ears from target and used the scraps from the shorts to make the bow. Then attached the bow using my glue gun. I loved how they turned out They matched her outfit and were inexpensive win win!!


She got to meet Minnie Mouse which brought a big smile on her face! She absolutely loved Disneyland and we are already planning to go back soon!!

If you would love to own this outfit I have enough material for one small size 18 month or 2T visit my Etsy shop for more details.

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …

Behind the Seams I

It's been a while since I've done a custom design or a Behind the Seams segment. Today I will be sharing with you my latest work. A month ago I was contacted by a young lady to design a gown for a wedding she was attending mid April. She sent me a picture of a mermaid dress she had stumbled across. The problem was that she wouldn't be able to get it delivered just in time for her event. I came to her rescue j/k. I met with her took down her measurements talked about fabric choices and any other details.


Here is a sketch of the design.
The design consisted of a mermaid silhouette, the neckline was almost like a racer back. The back was exposed with tiny spaghetti straps. The back skirt had a tiny bustle. The hem had tulle peeking out all around.

The chosen fabrics were red peach skin, red lining, and black tulle. The notions that were used included an invisible zipper and thread.

I generally like to drape my patterns on the dress form over flat pattern. This method seems fa…
