• These stretch velvet #SkyeJoggers might be the secret pajamas I wear for Thanksgiving 🙂 🦃
Working on a video for this waistband technique, as requested...
  • Give me all the cozy things, like Patti's @simple.blessed #zinniajacket We've had crazy cold weather recently and days where nothing seems to help me warm up - but I think her collar hack might do the trick. See more using the link in our stories or head to mellysews.com
  • These #snugglepajamas made by Tam @genkimade are so adorable!
  • Love these multi-directional stripes! You can make this look with the #austinteepattern using the ruffle peplum hack from our blog; just make your ruffle longer for this look. Check our stories for a link to the post.
  • The first type of marking tool I ever used was a tracing wheel. What about you? Head to stories today for a link to all different kinds of marking tools and which ones you might want to try for different fabrics.
  • My #blanctshirt  with the circle sleeve hack. To do this, measure your sleeve opening, then make a donut shape with the inner circle the same circumference as the sleeve opening. Cut it out the same way you would cut a circle skirt and then sew your "skirt" to the sleeve. Easy! For reference, the width between the inner and outer circles on my "donuts" was 4 inches - after 1/2 inch seam allowance and 1/2 inch hem that leaves 3 inches hanging that you see here.
  • #BlancTshirt dress 😍  There's a link in stories to a post on how I made this.
  • Kristine's #shorelineboatneck is the perfect wardrobe basic - and if you like capsule wardrobe dressing, a solid colored top like this one can make an appearance in many outfits and is the perfect background to an accessory like the gold necklace she styled it with. Love it! 📷 @kristinesews
  • I added a drawstring channel to the waistband of these #SkyeJoggers - would a tutorial for this type of waistband be helpful? I'm shooting some technique videos soon, so let me know if this should be included.
  • Did y’all catch Eveline’s ruffle hem hacked #bsptuliptop? So cozy and cute. Details in her post today on mellysews.com
