Pine and Dots

A few jackets that were photographed but didn’t make it to the blog.
Now they’ve moved on to new homes, so it’s one last look.
A jacket sewn from a gorgeous kimono silk. Covered with an oh so cool pine needle and branch design, accented with little red dots.
I appliqued skinny bias strips to emphasize the branch lines and black squares for punch.
I see a pine theme here, one of my favorite designs.
The jacket below was pieced from the silk of an old kimono.
I love the crooked bent branches contrasting with the overlapping, lacy lines from the needles.
And for pizazz, scattered gold pine cones.
No pine needles here, just gnarled branches.
I’ve appliqu├ęd over with curving white swooshes and red squares.
A closer look.
