Since I made a really funky little boy suit from that bright yellow Minions fabric, I could not hold back and make a matching dress for my little girl.
I did not just want to take the fabric and turn it into a cute dress though. I wanted to make something that a female Minion would wear (do they actually exist?). So I came up with the idea of making a dress à la overalls style, perfectly in line with the jeans overalls of the latest Minions fashion trend.
I pretty much winged this one. Apart from the simple bodice part that I used to get an idea for the size, every other part of the dress was derived through experimentation. The overalls part and the top part of the dress are attached, so the overalls cannot be worn separately. I wanted it to be a proper dress. The skirt is a simple A-line. There is a functional pocket in the front to store all those little treasures that can be picked up along the way.
It was a lot of fun making it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
