My Looks for MimiG Conference 2017

Check out the four pieces I created to walk this year’s MimiG Fashion and Sewing Conference Runway. I enjoyed sewing these looks and bringing my vision to life.

First, this Ivory jumpsuit made from a linen texture fabric. Walking the many aisles of fabrics,  I allowed this texture to speak to me. Thinking outside the box, believe it or not it’s an upholstery fabric. To create this jumpsuit I masterfully combined MimiG’s Simplicity 1115 and a 1950’s Vintage Simplicity 8130.IMG_2510

To accompany the ivory jumpsuit I paired it with a tangerine orange cotton/rayon ruffle open front jacket.


This jacket was crafted by combining MimiG’s Simplicity 8177  coat and the ruffle from S8394.


Take note this jacket has NO side seams, to achieve this I made a muslin jacket and then used it as a one piece pattern to cut. Then I simply made a circular cut and then attached a double ruffle. I love color so I lined it with a hot pink!



For look two, I pin it as my interpretation of “Avant-Garde meet Everyday.” Green polka dots, one puff sleeve with “Snap-off” top which reveals a one-shoulder jumpsuit underneath. Created the jumpsuit by combining MimiG’s S115 and S8380. I drafted the bias snap-off top with Puff sleeve. IMG_2496IMG_2492

This puff sleeve consists of four fabrics: Polka dot chiffon, green cotton/rayon, interfacing and a cotton lining.

Get ready! View the “snap-off”.
