What's Penny Wearing? #109 A "Minnie" Dress

I found this cute polka-dotted dress at a thrift store on half price day.
The minute I saw it, I thought "Minnie Mouse!"
The polka-dots are not as big as the ones traditionally seen on Minnie's dress, but still!
Aren't those sweet little bows on the sleeves?
 I think that for somebody who knows how to do makeovers and/or alterations on clothing, this could be reworked into a fabulous Halloween costume.
You could do any number of things with it.
You could lower the neckline, shorten the hem, add black tights, and a top with long black sleeves, white gloves and heels, maybe some bloomers - and a Minnie mouse headband, and you are Minnie.
 Sounds like a lot of work , I suppose, but for someone who sews it could be made into a super-cute, customized Minnie Mouse costume that is perhaps nicer looking than a purchased costume, and also less expensive.
It was just too cute to pass up.
Minnie says hi, everybody!

Very cute. I think it would be great as a costume just how it is. Love T

I will have to show you a photo of when I was Minnie for Halloween in my early twenties!!!
