I love the word aubergine. The vegetable, not so much.

I love the word aubergine. The vegetable, not so much.

For our office Christmas party last December, I asked for “assorted threads” or “assorted buttons” from my Secret Santa. I was given all sorts of sewing goodies, including about a dozen of mint green pearl buttons. I did not know what to do with them. I thought to myself, “These would join the ranks of those trinkets I’ve kept but never use.”
On New Year’s Day, I stared at my fabric pile for a long period of time (I do this a lot) and decided to sew a kimono blouse. I chose an aubergine Lecien fabric with flower prints.

The fabric had vine-like border prints and I thought they would be perfect for the neckline and hem of the sleeves.

Initially, I planned on using zipper to keep the back part of the blouse closed. But I miscalculated and ended up with a piece of clothing that I could not get into. Channeling my inner contortionist, I was able to wear the blouse. Once. I have no idea how I got out of it. Thankfully, I remembered the stash I got last Christmas. The buttons were perfect.
