Mie From Sewing Like Mad : SewingThe Trends

My special gust today is my blog friend Mie from Sewing Like Mad. 
I met Mie last year online and we became friends immediately. Well, we finally met in person at Fabric Weekend and were room mates. We had so much fun joking around about stuff until late at night and I wish we didn’t live across the country from one another!
Mie had her own ladies clothing line in Denmark before moving to the US where she is now a mom of two cute little girls. She KNOWS her stuff, and lately has been designing lots of great outfits for her girls . Here are a few projects I pulled from her blog to share with you:
Take it away Mie!

“I am Mie and I blog at Sewing Like Mad.  I am Danish, have been living in the US for almost 5 years and I have a sewing degree from Denmark. I used to have a very small women’s apparel company but closed it down when I became pregnant with my first child 6 years ago. I am married and have two girls, aged 3 and 5. 
Because I am a formally trained seamstress I sometimes have an almost geeky way of sewing. I love when the things I sew (for me and the girls) look nice both inside and out. In other words I am a regular user of French seams, double yokes, bias tapes and facings…..AND I am a massive fan of color block and just colors in general. I am SO happy that the neon colors have finally made their way into ‘everyones’ wardrobes. Definitely a summer trend for 2013!!”

Mie bought all of these fabrics at Fabric weekend. I know, I helped her carry these bags up from my car and they were heavy!
Please stop by Mie’s blog to read the whole post!
Thanks Mie!
I would say Mie’s look really has a graphic feel, wouldn’t you!
