DIY Minnie Mouse.

that cute ass leotard i rocked in vegas? i betchu didnt know i made it myself! i absolutely haaated sewing with a passion back when i was majoring in apparel design & merchandising. like, i literally have to WANT TO sew [i was only in it for the designing]. its cool to have the skill & knowledge to create a garment from just an idea, but i just get so frustrated with pattern making, reconstructing, measuring, doing shit over & over until its perfect *rolls eyes. ironically id say its time consuming, but so is my nail art. go figure? sewing is just not my favorite thing to do.



i graduated from my fashion program back in '07, so im kinda rusty. but after completing my DIY project, this reassures me that i still got it. aaaaaye! ;]


final sketch.

  1. I know it's been a couple years, but where did you get your fabric? I'm having a hard time finding big polka dots...
