Hi everyone. I know it's a bit early, but I'm trying to make a Minnie Mouse costume for Halloween. I won't have anytime really once September hits and I'd much rather make it than buy one. I'm going a bit old school with Minnie, and instead of doing a dress, I just wanted to make the skirt and add a black top.

I was thinking maybe something with tulle or possibly a pettiskirt. The thing is, I don't have access to a sewing machine, so it's all going to be hand sewn. I'm also a beginner sewer.

Any ideas? Any help would be lovely, thank you!

considering all the facts, this will be VERY hard, but some people just pick it up naturally and that could be you Smiley

you need to make a circle skirt, preferable in black and white if you are going old school minnie, that should be easy enough to sew by hand

the petticoat wont be as simple, its not that easy on a machine sometimes. this is the piece i always recommend buying, cos unless you buy the cheap scratchy toule, it will cost more than a petticoat at the store

thank you so much! i i've looked at a few circle skirt patterns, and it looks like something i can handle. i'm crossing my fingers!  Smiley

and i actually got a sewing machine. it's a little tabletop one with only 2 speeds. so i think it'll be good for me, not too many buttons or anything. lol. if i can't get the hang of the machine, i'll just sew it by hand, so no worries there.

thanks again

halloween stores sell cheap petticoats for maybe $30. i'd suggest buying one of those instead of making your own, unless you plan on wearing the petticoat a lot for everyday wear. the time and effort needed is just too much for a halloween costume.

I saw an adorable Minnie Mouse costume made with a white T and a tutu. You could easily make a pink tutu from tulle (no sew) and hot glue white dots to it. I saw one on Etsy, I think, that was super cute!

I purchased some petticoats for my daughter's on ebay from seller victoriangirldress:

Paid only around $20 each - they are full and soft. My daughter loves it!  Good luck with your costume.
