I am so excited to be a part of another Perfect Pattern Parcel. It is such a thrill to work with such awesome Indie designers and help a great cause at the same time. For Perfect Pattern Parcel #5 I decided to sew up the Mimi by Filles a Maman. I have been eyeing this pattern for a while and jumped at the opportunity to use it.
This pattern is a dream to sew. It comes together very quickly and makes a huge impact. The instructions come in English and French so you can practice your French while sewing this one up.
The Mimi has so many options including:
-Cap sleeve or long sleeve.
-Simple keyhole neckline, asymetrical peter pan colar or fringe.
-Shirt or dress length or even tunic!
-Sizes 12m-14y for a wide range of sizes.
I opted to make the long sleeve version for the upcoming winter. The keyhole neckline just makes me swoon.
For this version of the Mimi, I used an old sweater of mine. It worked perfectly to make this adorable tunic length shirt. I just chopped the shirt up and then placed my pattern pieces on the sweater. I did opt to do a straight hemline, just to preserve the bottom edge of the sweater.

How Pattern Parcel Works:
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel. We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity Donorschoose.org in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Together we’ve raised over $11,000 for classrooms in need.
