"Ever since I was a kid I always had a soft spot for Disney. I talked to Erika and asked her about the possibility to create a Minnie Mouse Dirndl and she told me that she was up for the challenge.  Ever since I received the Minnie Mouse Dirndl from Rare Dirndl, I have worn it out to many German events and festivals. Erika was a pleasure to work with. I love having a Dirndl that is fun and unique and fits my personality." -Caroline Dektas Cincinnati, OH
