Mouse Birthday Precious Top for a Precious Birthday Girl



Our darling little Cheeks is 2 !!!!


This little cutie just LOOOOOVES Minnie and Mickey Mouse! as in she is completely obsessed! 

So when I heard the Project Run and Play's themes and the 1st one was 80's cartoon I knew exactly the outfit I would blog! I don't know about you, but I watched a lot of Mickey and Minnie in the 80's!


I used the Scientific Seamstress Precious dress. I wanted a classic Minnie looking dress, but also wanted to make it a bit modern for everyday wear and not a costume. I am a practical seamstress. I like everyday wear outfits.


I  just adore the finishing details on this dress, the hidden button placket is such a nice touch. Especially since I used snaps... Cheeks doesn't hold still very well during getting dressed so I like fast closure options.


I did a double skirt layere to get the classic red polka dot on there and to tie in the sleeve bands. The black collar I think brings the shirt into a modern feel versus the traditional white collar.


The pants are the Sisboom Katies, but they are for another blog post :)


Happy Birthday Cheeks!

SO CUTE!!! But she totally outshines Minnie. She outshines everything. The top is adorable, though. SO adorable.

I love the black collar--looks like a subtle nod to Minnie's ears! Really sweet dress.

awww so cute!!! I love minnie and mickey... A show I actually watched in the 80's ;o) I'm currently hosting a sewing series called Sew Many Books. There is a sew a long {with prizes!} and not many entries ;o) If you have sewed anything inspired by a book in 2014 I'd love for you to come over and link it up. It doesn't have to be a new project. Head over to Nap-Time Creations and look up Sew Many Books...

Great first addictions to prints can lead to quilting. Great comfy looking dress. I think I'd like to put one together too. Great blog and fun to learn more.
