Sew Paradise

i love blogs

I found the fabric district in Paris listed on an expat’s blog. Montmartre in the 18e. Haven’t yet found anything similar in Avingnon but I’m sure I’ll find something. There’s a piece of Proven├žale fabric with my name on it coming home with me.

I’m just about to turn in, and to fall asleep dreaming of sewing projects. Do you do this too? I imagine them step by step and then the finished product. The swing of a swing coat. The sweep of a ruana with curved ruffled hem, the swish of the perfect inner-Katherine pants. I chuckle – Burda refers to these as Marlene Dietrich pants, but I’m sure Kate made them popular first. At some point, I fall asleep, usually as I’m wearing them (which is probably how I got to the Addams Family dream).

What will I dream about tonight? A curved-hem ruana in an aubergine sweater knit.

See you in the morning!

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.
