Had a great time
Mar 2019 • Solo
This wasn't my first trip to Paris and I had a lot of free time on my own as my husband was at a conference. Decided to give this a try and am so glad I did! Admittedly it was a little overwhelming at first because I am not a great seamstress or even designer. But the ladies there all made it work and made it so much fun. It was great to interact with real French people instead of just doing tourist things. If you like whimsey and you would like to do more than museums in Paris, this is a great alternative. And I ended up with a great denim jacket that is a conversation piece. A great time!

Highlight of my trip! SOOOO much fun!!!!
Jan 2019 • Solo
I can't rave enough about this class! I had the good fortune of stumbling upon their listing and WOW was it phenomenal!!! The ambiance and decor felt as if you suddenly were transported into Alice in Wonderland.
Chapellerie MiniMe Paris recently added this class and I had the good fortune of being one of the first people.

As it was a new class, I was the only one - which meant I had two expert women, one over each shoulder, guiding me every step of the way.

The class started with looking through four stacks of "vests" (the jean jacket minus the sleeves, collar and pocket flaps. Each stack was a different color (stone wash, acid wash, fleece lined, etc). Measurements were taken to fit the vest portion to my body, which one of the designers took care of.

Next a large assortment of sleeves, collars and pocket flaps were put out to choose from, using various fabrics and colors. Honestly I felt like a kid who had just been given the keys to the candy store! In addition there were some AMAZING woven fabrics (the main designer still has connections with some very high level, high fashion companies!) as a choice to sew on to the back. And to add a finishing flourish there were numerous sequined appliques, buttons, etc to pick out and add to your jacket.

Once everything was picked out, it was time to pin the various pieces and sew them together on a heavy duty professional sewing machine. The two amazing seamstress/designers (so sorry, I don't recall their names - one was the mother of the main designer!) were SO helpful in pinning, and overseeing that I was stitching everything properly.

Honestly this was one of the, if not THE most fun classes I have EVER taken - PLUS I had an amazing souvenir which easily would have cost more than the class if I had purchased it in a boutique. Even if you don't sew, this is a great time to learn - AND the women who were helping me were more than happy to do all the sewing, pinning, etc. if I had wanted.
