Mimi G For Michael Levine DIY Top Tutorial!

Hi Darlings!

It's so strange to be somewhere other than on my blog posting, but I'm very excited to share something awesome with you.  Over the next few months, I will be posting amazing, FREE tutorials for all of you to enjoy, thanks to the wonderful folks at Michael Levine Inc. We are going to have so much fun together, but I urge you not to miss any postings or announcements. So please, make sure to follow this blog by clicking "FOLLOW" in the sidebar and signing up for the newsletter HERE.

If you are not familiar with my blog, Mimi G Style, or my tutorials, let me share how it works. I film step by step, and easy to follow video tutorials that anyone can sew along to. Not only are my tutorials fun and easy to understand, but they are all fashion-sewing based, and great for any skill level.

Now lets get to the tutorial! We will be drafting and sewing from start to finish, a top that is flattering for almost anyone, and then we will be adding some great leather patch pockets, or a cool leather exclamation point. There is also an adjustment for those who prefer an off the shoulder look. Enjoy!

 FABRIC & SUPPLIES NEEDED: 1.5 -2 Yards of Purple Double Knit HERE, Black HERE  / 1 Leather Hide  HERE / Optional: Trim HERE

Three Looks



  1. Love it!!! Can't wait to get started.

  2. How much leather will be used from the is costly to mess it up i fee like i need to practice with another peice of fabric first.

  3. Once you print out the template you can see the amount needed. Never a bad idea to practice first!
