Holiday Dress

The skirt was from my fourteen year old sister's Minnie Mouse Halloween costume and the top is  made from the left over scraps.  I chose to do this outfit because one day I was at my neighbor's house playing Calico Critters when I was inspired by one of the Calico Critter's outfits.  The next morning I slid the skirt on to the mannequin and wrapped the fabric around the top part of the mannequin and pinned it in the back.  Then, I got bias tape for the strap and a big green button and sewed the button to one end of the strap with silver thread.  Then I sewed up the sides to make it tighter.  Last of all I tucked it in to the skirt!
