• This floral #RivageRaglan by @heide_apronhistory is a great compliment to her lovely cardigan. ๐Ÿ˜
  • Aren't vintage sewing supplies just the prettiest? Hope you have a great weekend!
  • I love how many ways @erinalwayssews has styled her #TillerySkirt. Check out her feed for more great styling ideas for this versatile skirt.
  • Gorgeous color in this #PeppermintPjs top by @mamemimoblog!
  • I totally agree with what @redleaf.etc said about her #EsmaTop โ€” "Sometimes simple sews are the best.โ€ The simple shape of the top shows of this lovely fabric perfectly, and the necklace she chose for the neckline is just so good!
  • One of the most popular posts on my blog last year was this tutorial for how to add circle flounces to sleeves. Here I used a drapey rayon knit and the #BlancTshirt pattern. I've got a link in stories for you or you can just go to mellysews.com and search "circle sleeve"
  • @andreashpuntoff in perfect basics - a #ShorelineBoatneck over slim jeans and sneakers is a silhouette that will always be in style.
  • My kids are back in school and I finally get to spend some time sewing. ๐Ÿ™Œ Now it seems like a new year. As I plan for the new year, I'm curious - what kinds of patterns would you like to see?
  • Who else goes on a planning kick in January? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ This month on my YouTube channel, I'm focusing how to plan a handmade wardrobe you'll actually wear. You can check it out at youtube.com/mellysews โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
In this week's video I talk about the book that helped me stop sewing things I only wore occasionally - The Curated Closet. I worked through it 3 years ago and recently went through an update that I'm chronicling on my channel. One of the first things you do is take a picture of every outfit you wear for 2 weeks; this is one of my OOTD pics from that period. Wearing an #EsmaTop in rayon crinkle gauze.
  • Love this suit @ellen.mchugh made for her daughter using the #TillerySkirt pattern! So good.
