Sew Paradise

What if I didn’t buy any clothes…

For the next six months. Nursing bras don’t count. But what if I sewed everything I’m wearing for the next six months. Use up the stash. Post a SnS on Sewingmamas and SewingRefuge every week. What could I make? The BurdaStyle Anda dress with nursing overlay. I am sure I have a knit that would work (hey, that b&w diagonal stripe…) The HotPatterns Sugar Babe outfit with green ombre knit tube top, black linen pants, and green linen jacket. The flare leg pants in capri length in lime green linen. That sounds like a summer capsule.

Then, into fall. An auburgine sweaterknit Cardiwrap. Navy and camel wool flare leg pants. B&W houndstooth flare leg pants. Iridescent denim flare leg pants (love the flare leg pants!) Auburgine paisley tube top (cut down the burda top I didn’t like) or super simple Anda tee. Slate wool knit Sugar Babe pants. Lilac princess wrap with 3/4 sleeves. Peach floribunda nursing top. Black and brown mesh knit reversible tee.
And that’s just the surface! I haven’t even thought of the fabric I have stashed. Honey brocade, tissue linen in aqua, floral linen for a baby sling.
I’d be super stylish, that’s what I’d be…

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.
