Sew Paradise

I have a great wardrobe!

The problem is I forget I have half of it with the state of our jammed closets. So in the new house, a new commitment to wearing all the stuff that I have. Anything that’s slightly not quite, goes to charity or to resale. This is my semi-annual post on the state of our closets. I love this switchover – it’s like ‘everything new’ in my closet. From forgotten espadrilles tucked in a box under my trousers, now to be paired with linen wide leg trousers and a sleeveless top to crisp skirts just waiting to be mated with a cardigan, scarf and ballet flats. I have a GREAT wardrobe!

And I even realized a ruana I love that I had nothing to really ‘go with’, I bought two new pieces of fabric for tops that match (it’s a dusty peach and a warm sage, both of which I bought in rayon/lycra last week. The new crossover top with an elbow length banded sleeve, worn with cream silk pants and the ruana? perfect spring or cool summer day outfit.

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.
