Welcome Etsy Visitors!

If you're visiting The Sew Weekly from The Storque (Etsy's Homemade Blog), welcome! I hope that it inspires any intimidated folks out their to give garment sewing a chance. It's not as hard as it seems! To check out everything I've sewn, you can start here or click on the thumbnails.

If you're a regular of this blog, here's the article they ran about The Sew Weekly. Spoilers: I talk about sewing!

Mena Trott started The Sew Weekly to document her attempt to sew all of her own clothes in 2010. Since then, she's made over 125 outfits and has way more clothes than she needs.

  1. I am impressed with your efforts!! A dress a week would push me over the edge. Your dresses are beautiful and colorful. I applaude you for sharing your thoughts about handmade, earlier times and storebought clothes.
    I opened a shop on etsy after thinking of my grandmothers, their lives and creativity. I am happy to see sewing making a great comeback! Your blog is beautifully done.

  2. This is incredible. Personally, I have little to no sewing experience, even though I am pretty decent at hand sewing. I’ve been playing with the idea of attempting to sew my own clothing (operative word there is “attempting”) for a couple of years now, but I’ve never really found the time. Your work is a real inspiration. I’m bookmarking this blog as a place I can come back to and hopefully work up the courage to try it on my own someday soon. College might keep me from devoting a whole lot of time to it but your work has shown me that even a few hours on the weekends is enough to get started. Thank you so much, and keep up the amazing work!

  3. cool article, I love following your blog and seeing what you’ll make next :) x

  4. I found your blog via the Storque & I’m so glad I did! Love this project. Your creations are so inspirational! Keep up the amazing work.
