My name is Melanie– I used to go by Melanie A. on the former S&S forum. It’s been about four years since I did any historical costuming/sewing and now that I am graduated from university and have my own place, I am interested in getting back into sewing again. In the past, my main interest has been the Regency era and I’ve made several day dresses and ballgowns using Sense and Sensibility’s patterns. I am excited to get back into more Regency-era sewing as well as exploring other eras that have more recently grabbed my attention, such as the mid-18th century and the 1920s.
I have recently resurrected my former sewing blog, which can be found here: http://hooks-and-needles.blogspot.com/ I plan to document my sewing projects there but also hope I can find plenty of ideas, help, and inspiration here as well.
Looking forward to getting to know you all. 🙂

Hi and welcome back. I’m currently working on finding time to sew around a toddler which is challenging , but I’ve gotten a few things finished lately which makes me feel a bit accomplished. Next up is sewing something for myself!
