nursing tops and dresses Sew Paradise

Okay, here they are so far…

Hot Patterns Sugar Babe jacket

I probably won’t wear the jacket with this top but needed something on under it for the photo shoot. And we were baby-wrangling at the time.

Elizabeth Lee Nursing Classics 307, view 2 and a closer view of the back. It reminds me of a ‘nantucket’ dress – a sundress you might see at one of the classics stores, like Talbot’s, or in New England beach town boutique. It would also look mighty fab in Key West Handprint Fabrics.

Self-drafted brown tunic (and matching baby dress and bloomers). Pants are also self drafted, but several years old. The tunic is a sarong style, with the overlaps in front (easy nursing; I own a strapless nursing bra) and edged with serged rolled hemming.

BWoF tunic from the 7/2008 issue (Burda World of Fashion – a European fashion sewing magazine). I have lots of BWoF issues from about the last three years, so I have a lot of patterns to choose from.

Lavender dress, from 20 year old Androsia batik from the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas. Self-drafted (I cut down a shirt of mine into an A-line dress.)

Brown dress, and bloomers, they match mama’s tunic! Same style as mine, with a sarong front. Hers has brown and tan polka dotted ribbon halter strings and a bow sewn to the center front.

The location is mom & dad’s lake house (yes, it’s a Great lake house) on the deck. You can see why I vacation here. The sewing room is upstairs in their big Cape Cod style house, we have a loft living room, bath, bedroom and sewing room. Mom cooks, puts beers in the fridge to chill, makes me coffee. I’m tellin’ ya, I would never leave!

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.
