HI DARLINGS! I feel like I have been gone forever but you all know that every year starting in late May my posts are not as frequent because the summer conference takes up all our time but it is over now and I am back! I will have recap pics of the conference for you tomorrow but today I had to share my latest SIMPLICITY PRE-FALL PATTERNS.

I designed two new patterns for pre-fall and I am so excited because one of them is my first men’s pattern! I had been wanting to design a new men’s pattern for a long time so I asked Norris if he would like to help design it. I knew he would have insight on how a classic men’s button up shirt should be designed and ultimately fit so with his help we launched MIMI G STYLE MEN. Both the WOMEN’S JUMPSUIT #8426  and the MENS SHIRT  #8427 are available online and will have a step-by-step sew along’s that will be available on the Simplicity YouTube channel this week

The first pattern is my favorite jumpsuit to date that I have designed. I love this pattern!! It has so many options when it comes to fabric choices, color-blocking, and mixing textures. You could even shorten the hem and make them Capri length for sandals this summer.

Both patterns should be arriving in stores now so make sure you get them before they get back ordered. Also, make sure to check out NORRIS for a few more pictures of the men’s shirt pattern
