Sew Paradise

If you think about sewing, does that count?

Starting a sewing blog was a fun idea. Half the fun of sewing is coming up with new ideas of things to sew!

I looked through the box of Japanese cottons my friend Sue sent me earlier this year. There are some excellent fabrics in there. I saw a ruffled, tiered sundress for peanut, a gathered-neck shell for myself out of some red and black japanese cotton. A summer skirt in a sophisticated palette of gray and black abstract (yes, I know, it’s not bright colors, but it will be chic with a white tank and black sandals).

It’s nice to daydream about sewing. Though today, I did more than daydream, I fitted the NC 201 nursing swimsuit, and am in the process of cutting it out in advance of sewing this weekend.

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.
