MimiG Conference Recap! 2017

So I attended the MimiG conference over the weekend, and as usual I was throughly impressed. I stayed in the JW Marriott where the conference was hosted.  As usual we had 3 full days jam-packed with events. Here is a list of the events for conference:

Day1:   Fashion Show

The conference attendees had the option to come up with their own twist in original Mimi G patterns and tutorials. Every time I see the different looks, I always get inspired. The pictures above were my ultimate faves. I didn’t include all my faves because it was soooo much! All the attendees in the show did fantastic!

 


Day 2:  Class Is In Session!

I signed up for certain classes for this day. I registered for the 1st class called Wardrobe Planning taught by Joy Macdonell. This class was soooo much fun!! She gave me some ideas in regards to fully planning my wardrobe. When I’m sewing a new wardrobe, there are certain things that I need to be considerate of. What’s the season in that state? What are my season colors? etc. I cannot wait to fully start planning my wardrobe in a more organized fashion! Here are some pictures below:

I will say, those Faber Castell colored pencils are what I need in my life!! These are perfect for fashion illustrations.

After the wardrobe planning class, I moved onto the next class. The next class was called A Guide to Lingerie with Maddie Flanigan. I absolutely loved this class!!! I finally conquered my fear of sewing lingerie. Take a look at the pictures below (this was more of an instructional workshop then a hands-on like the first class I was in.)

We then took a lunch break and babylock sewing came to chat with us about sewing machines and sergers!! We also went to the lobby area to socialize and take pictures!IMG_4693

GUESS WHO’S GOING TO SEE MIMI G!?!

Guys! Yes it’s true! I am attending the Mimi G Style Sewing Conference in July. This is my first time going to this conference and meeting her. So clearly I am beyond excited. No one realizes how much this woman is an inspiration to me. I buy all her sewing patterns and watch all her sewing videos on YouTube. I’m so excited to meet her and tell her how much I love her lol.
