Sew Paradise

In (desperate) need of a summer dress…

My summer denim dress will be great….but it’s also denim. I want a sundress. So I’m thinking I need to cut out a dress out of some of the rest of the knits I bought in Chicago those years ago. One of the Elizabeth Lee dresses, sleeveless.

I’m printing my pattern for the Janina pants/shorts and am planning to do some cutting out today. I will no doubt have to make a muslin of the dress, but I think I may just pin-fit the shorts (!)

I was at target getting the baby some new shoes yesterday and came to the realization – I don’t need any more clothes. I love sewing and plan to sew all summer. But I have no interest in new RTW.

Off to look at the pattern and fabric stash…

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.
