The Mimi for Women!

I sewed something for me again the other day!

Mimi-Front2-ImFeelinCrafty

It’s the Mimi for women by Filles a Maman. She sent out a call for testers and I signed up! I loved her little Rose skirt that I made earlier this year, so I wanted to try out the grown up pattern!

The Mimi top is a pattern that she’s had in her shop for kids for a while, but now she’s releasing it for grown ups! Being on the larger side, I love promoting patterns that go up to my size. And I think this one is flattering even for me!

The pattern says it’s for confident beginners, and that’s pretty right on. If it wasn’t for the knit part, I think it would be easy for any beginner. Not that sewing with knits is hard, but it can be intimidating to some. Otherwise, easy peasy! I also love that there are options. The pattern also has an option to make it into a dress, but I opted for just the top. And there are also options for the collar, the key hole, the button, the little peter pan like collar and the fringe option.

Obviously, I went for the key hole with a button collar option. One tester did just the key hole without the button and the top just opens and lays so nice with the contrasting . I think I want to try that next time!

I didn’t change a thing. I didn’t change the length, nothing. And it fits me perfect! This fabric is technically my muslin, but I love it and have worn it out and about, just like it is!

I highly recommend the pattern! It’s a creative take on the basic tee. It’s an easy and quick sew. And it’s been pretty right on for all the testers sizes. Go ahead, buy it here!

I have been compensated with either payment or product for this post. All opinions are my own, honest opinions!

The Breeze Top for Women!

Remember a while back when I made the adorable breeze top for my niece? (If not, check it out!)

Well, all the testers wanted it for themselves too! So what did Shannon, the designer of all the Peaches and Peanuts patterns, do??? She made it for women! Oh, yea!

BreezeTop-Grn-Side-ImFeelinCrafty

And I love it! It’s such an easy sew! The pattern is designed for knits, but I want to try it in a woven… Some other testers did and it’s still cute! It’s the perfect top for summer! It has the two pieces on the front that I love in the color block look I did it in.

And the back is a racer back! I love that it has a little something different in the back.

The pattern is includes sizes XS to 2XL, so it’s sized for everyone’s wardrobe! Like I said it’s an easy sew! The instructions were tested with the girl’s version and now with the women’s pattern, so you know it has to be good.

Breeze-Top-WOMEN-Pattern-Cover-540x700

And probably one of the best things for you… It’s on sale! Thru Saturday, August 23rd, the pattern is only available directly from Shannon and it only $4.77! WHAT??? $4.77! Seriously, you need to buy it now at that steal!  After the 23rd, the price goes up to $7.95 (which is still very reasonable!) And check out those two adorable ladies on the pattern cover! Yep!

I’ve worn mine ALOT! Even if the fabric is just a ‘muslin’ knit, it’s comfy and looks nice. So it’s been out and about in the real world!
