I was in need of something simple today, because I've not been feeling well and I wanted to still have time this evening to sit on the sofa, eat nachos and drink wine - Because it's Friday dammit and I need a REST!
So, today I made a Kirsten Kimono Tee from Maria Denmark. It's a free pattern and you can find the link here.
I'm actually really pleased with this. It's sooo comfy and even though it's so simple I still love the style. One thing that I hadn't anticipated was how hard it is to sew with black! It's been a pretty grey day here so the light wasn't that great, but i just found it really hard to SEE anything! I've never really sewn with black fabric before because until now I have mostly sewn clothes for the children and I don't tend to dress them in black.
I think this is probably the cheapest item of clothing I have ever made - pattern was free and I got about 4 metres of this fabric for $2 because it had a couple of rips in it - there was still heaps of lovely useable fabric though - I'll get another couple of tees out of it and probably some leggings too :)
Sorry about the terrible photos - I forgot to take them until it was almost dark and it was raining to boot! Still, gotta have evidence right..?
This tee is going to be another wardrobe staple and I'm already planning to make more!
