Sew Paradise

A luscious summer thread wardrobe by Coats and Clark


A summer wardrobe starts with the thread. I picked up four spools of new thread for new summer sewing. The green is for the sling you see underneath. The photo isn’t as crisp in the evening light in my sewing room, but this is a clear, light spring green. It’s Solarveil (yes, yes, I know, coveted, and not mine, and not made any more). I’m sewing a ring sling for a newborn baby that belongs to a friend. The flax, a pair of wide leg linen drawstring trousers for myself. My own pattern. The hibiscus, a tiered ruffled dress from BurdaStyle for my 5yo daughter and a duo of mother-and-daughter silk charmeuse drawstring tops. The sky, a pair of linen shorts for myself, also BurdaStyle (same issue as the girl’s dress.)

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
