  9. Just wanted to comment and say hello from the UK! I have been following your blog for about 6 months now, and I am so impressed and inspired with the clothes that you have made! I sew a little, but am yet to try a clothes pattern - maybe 2013 is the year to try! Best wishes for the new year, Lauren xo

  10. Mimi, I just love your style. You do things with a needle and thread that I could only wish to do. I have never had the patience for sewing but you have made me pull out my sewing machine. I'm still looking at but have not attempted to sew. Maybe one of these days I'll do your sewing for beginners course. But until then please keep inspiring us with your Craft, Fashion, Style and creativity.

    Signed Humbled by your talent,

  11. Hi Mimi
    Love every one of these garments. What a wonderful productive year you have had. I am hoping that 2013 will be more productive for me than 2012 was.

    The first 3 dresses you have shown are just amazing. Are they of your own design or can you tell what pattern they are from.

  31. Such an inspiration! One of my 2013 goals is to take classes to learn the fundamentals. I doubt I'll ever be as good as you, due to time constraints, but I certainly hope to be able to create a couple of pieces by mid-year! Happy New Year to you and your family!

  36. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! You are my fashion (and fitness) inspiration! I'm guessing the maxi skirt you made from your favourite jeans doesn't count because it wasn't done "from scratch"...But anyway, just wanted to wish you and your family all the best for 2013! Only greater things to come..

    Much love..
