Sew Paradise

The workstation

Hubby built me a sewing workstation and it’s incredible.

Really incredible. I could really create on this! My machine sits recessed (we opted to not use a lift, as the machine must then be screwed down to it) on a small shelf. There’s a shelf that folds down that holds it in place when the doors are closed. I am SO excited to sew on this.

My current next project is another tube top and jacket to match an existing pair of silk drapey pants.  I’m making the tube top in a brown stretch velvet (yeah not a summery fabric usually but hey, it’ll work). And probably another baby sling soon.

This week I am taking maternity clothes to consignment (my other blog, not linked to this one, details my loooong history of miscarriage, and my very difficult, dangerous pregnancy). So I am using that as an excuse to purchase new shoes for trip to France in the fall. And perhaps a new business suit.

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.
