Fringe Kimono Sew-Along w/ Mimi G

Hi Darlings, I love lave and I love kimonos, cardi's and just about anything I can throw over my jeans and tee. When I saw this gorgeous lace I knew it would look awesome as a kimono with fringe. I used a super simple pattern by New Look and the fabric links are below (remember to use MIMI10 at checkout for a 10% discount on online orders)

Enjoy the sew-along video below!

Swimsuit Tutorials + Fabric Sale!!

Hi Darlings, What better time to talk about swimwear than now! If you live in Los Angeles you know it has been HOT and if you are headed to the beach this summer you are going to need some sexy swimwear tutorials and awesome fabrics. I posted three sew-along videos below to choose from.

Michael Levine Fabrics is having a SALE starting today! For two days (July 3-4) you can save 20% off the ENTIRE SITE with code "FIREWORKS"

Let's start by one of my favorite tutorials I did last summer. This swimsuit has a great vintage feel and was a big hit so if you missed it I have linked the step-by-step video below along with two great Cheetah Print and Leopard Print  fabrics that will look hot!

These two swimsuits below are from my Simplicity summer patterns and are available in both misses and plus size. I made the swimsuits out of a jungle print and a solid gold that are no longer available but I linked to some amazing fabrics below including my current PLAID favorites! The FLORAL with POLKA DOTS would be a really cool combo and the CHEVRON and SOLIDS are great choices as well.

This swimsuit has a great front ruffle and gathered sides with ties, it is super flattering and can be made from a solid or a print and it will look amazing either way. I linked some of my fabric picks below along with the step-by-step video tutorial.
