Coming Soon: A Brand New Madalynne

new-madalynne-screenshot

Over the past 6 months, I’ve been working to completely redesign Madalynne, turning it into more of a business and less of a hobby blog. I started blogging 8 years ago and let me tell you, I was as an awful fashion blogger! Let’s all take a moment to poke fun at my very first site on OnSugar.com. Chanel, Etsy picks of the week, and the original wayfarers – I published cheesy and godawfully clichΓ© posts. It took me 6 years to shift the focus of Madalynne to my true passion – sewing. Since then, I have grown up and grown out of my current blog design. That’s okay; it’s just a naturally part of evolving. So above, I give you a sneak peek of the new layout. A large chunk will feature my photography. In the image above, the notions surrounding the page are vintage sewing trinkets, doodads and doohickeys I have collected. They also inspired my Instagram series #thewaysewingusedtobe. The new Madalynne will also have pages dedicated solely to sewing lessons, sewing workshops, photography services and myΒ one-day-published book. What I’m most excited about though is my shop on Society 6, where you can purchase my sewing-inspired prints and t-shirts to wear or to decorate your sewing spaces! I’ll give you more details on that in another post.

I’ll leave it at that until the launch, which will be very, very soon. Stay tuned! I’m excited!

      So great to hear that you enjoyed my class! Because viewers won’t gave access to the video forever, I made sure the takeaway had tons of information that they could refer to forever.

    Great little preview. The new design really looks fantastic. As we grow and evolve as blogs, it is only natural that our blogs (the look, feel, and most importantly – what we post about) grows with us. I think we can get roped into posting things we think people want to read – and that is sometimes important from a business standpoint, but at the end of the day we always should stay true to ourselves and I can see that you have really done that through the evolution of your blog.

      It’s so important to think less about what your readers want and more about what you want. I’m not saying readers aren’t important, but it’s more important that you’re following your passions.

    How exciting! We are always evolving as people and I love that through blogs we can share that journey. I love the new look, it’s feminine but grown up too. Vintage but not twee.

    Fabulous! Could you blog redesign please, please, please include larger fonts? Your present font size is miniscule. Thanks.

      Thanks for the callout! Once the new site is up, let me know if the font is still too small.

        That’s true, but totally unnecessary on 99.9% of blogs out there.

    That should have been “your.”

    It’s a beautiful redesign! Just as I anticipated. It looks very sleek and sort of more editorial, if that makes any sense. The background is lovely and very YOU, and I adore the logo and that pretty hand lettering! I’m excited to see it live!!
