Who's That Chic

My name is Michelle and my family calls me Meeshie. My background is in Fashion Design but I love anything to do with art. When it comes to interior designing I like to design on a budget. I can't always afford all the grand things in life but I do have a way of creating alternative options that fit my budget.

I took quite a few years off from sewing and just returned to sewing at the end of 2013. I’ve gotten my sew-jo back and now I am super excited to share the things that I am making. Clothes are like art to me and I have a love for boldness and anything colorful. I have been called a master at mixing and matching prints and I own that title!

2015 was an exciting year for my sewing. I won the first annual Rippin Ain’t Easy sewing competition with Prettygirlssew.com. I was a judge for the Super Online Sewing Match II with sewmamasew.com. My blog was chosen as one of the 50 top blogs on burdastyle.com. I am currently a blogger for Fabric Mart as well as a contributor for several online sewing communities and I have also been featured on these outlets. I am excited to start 2016 by partnering with BERNINA as an ambassador and can't wait to see what you think about my work!

What am I doing besides starting up this Blog? I work full-time and I founded a book club called "The Sista Girl Book Club" back in 2005. I am the mother of three and I call them my three amigos. My daughter Mori who’s face you see all over this blog, my sons A & J. Now that we have been formally introduced, sit back and kick off your shoes and enjoy the show.

  4. You have unique style. I am a more so a pastel and child at heart type of person. I love anything pink if you will like a "Indian rose" pink with little pastels color like greens, purples and white and floral too.

  18. You had me at sew-jo. Lol. I saw you on FB rockin' pattern 7016. Extremely flattering. I have 3 daughters who are voluptuous women, who would look super in this style. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? I am your newest follower and admirer. You can check me out at Current Girlfriend.blogspot.com

  20. Hi. I love the denim clutch. Looks like the videos for TangieB are no longer. I'm trying to find the massive fringe Diy and the clutch (I do better watching then trying). Do you know if they're still available? Please let me know. I can send you my email.

  23. Hi Michelle, I just recently started following you and think you are so fabulous. I have an abundance of beautiful fabric and sources for more, and about to set up a store on Etsy. I also thought that it would be good to sell fabric from time to time at some kind of venue. I'm not too far from Philly. I think you're from that area? Any ideas? Many thanks.
