Hello! I am Melissa, 18 years old and "amateur" is the best word to describe my seamstress abilities. I love to sew, however I still have much to learn. I am a Civil War reenactor with the Western Female Seminary Living History Society and the Ladies' Living History Society in Cincinnati, Ohio. I sew mostly Civil War, but I have sewn other things. This blog is just going to be me telling and showing the world all that I sew. Enjoy!
