Acorns

12 Mar

The oak tree is my best friend and I’s favorite tree. She has an amazing tattoo of oak leaves winding up her leg and I dream of having an oak tree spread across my back (except I am much to much of a wuss). So when I saw this fabric available for presale on Bizzy&Boo’s etsy page I knew I had to get some. It is ‘Fallen Acorn’ in a dusky green, organic jersey knit and it is lush.

Because the print is so wonderful on its own, I wanted a simple pattern that would let the fabric do all the talking. In the end I settled on the Kirsten Kimono Tee from maria Denmark which I’ve made myself a few times.

At Christmas I gave my BFF an acorn in a little box with a coded message along the lines of ‘a hint of what’s to come’. Pretty mischievous right?  This is number 4 of my post-Christmas sewing presents. Well the fabric was delayed in getting here, which actually suited me well as I haven’t been doing much sewing. But when it did arrive I was able to quickly whip up the Maria Denmark’s Kirsten Kimono Tee.

I’ve made it for myself a few times now and love the simplicity of the design and the shape. And I think it really shows off the fabric well.  I opted to use a matching neck band; finished the seams with the overlock stitch, and used a twin needle on the sleeves and hem. PS did I mention she’s a shit hot scientist?
