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!!
