Hi all! I’m Melissa from Melly Sews, and I’m so excited to be here today. I’m a former theatre teacher, mom to two boys, and wife to a football coach. I do a lot of boy sewing usually (like the Sew in Tune series I have running now) so I’m thrilled to have the occasional chance to make something girly!
The Watermelon part of the skirt name is probably obvious, but the Social part – that’s from another small school I worked at, that had a Watermelon Social for back to school every year. I like to imagine a girl in foster care attending one of these back to school events looking special and loved in a skirt like this.
Thanks liZ and Elizabeth for having me, and even more for putting this great event together!
