The ultimate collection of basic patterns that can be sewn, modified, and styled to yield more than 100 unique looks
Make It Yours with Mimi G is all about creating a fully functional wardrobe to love. Starting with six base patterns, Mimi G then hacks each pattern to create 26 new designs that will be styled both together and separately for a total of more than 100 looks. But this book isn’t just about hacking patterns to give you a complete wardrobe; it’s also about showing you how to style each garment and make your DIY wardrobe work for you.
Fashion and style are an integral part of making your own clothing, and this book offers a complete guide to making the perfect wardrobe for each individual. Mimi G’s own understanding of fit, her size-inclusive patterns, and ability to make what most would call “basic patterns” into unforgettable looks give this book incredible appeal. Focused on the modern maker wanting to create a sustainable wardrobe—with sewing, style, and design options—Mimi G’s take is unlike any other.
