Nettles ✷ Starry Ancestors ✷✷ This linen top was personally motivated. Nettle is my closest plant friend whom I interact with daily. It was the first plant I ever truly gathered in abundance and dried myself for winter use. It was a big act of self care at the time, as someone not yet able to face other demons, I was able to feel this nourishment in the form of a stinging plant and begin the work for myself. Since then my feelings and understanding of Nettle have grown so much, to see her as a very old friend, grandmother, ancestor, star being... so for me this top is an ode to her. A thank you, as I look at the packets of Nettle seeds I will be planting here. As I look at the big jar of infusion chilling in the fridge right now. As I see so many of you in love with and aided by this ancestor. This plant I feel so starry eyed for, every time I see it! ✷ ✷ This linen cropped top is the replacement for the handsewn tops I’ve made in the past. It is very similar - slightly smaller neckline and has more of a sleeve - but a very versatile boxy fit. I think this style of shirt is more flattering on someone curvier than myself, but it can compliment anyone. I’m wearing the XS in forest green. The brand is LinenFox - for anyone interested in the quality and integrity of the maker. These tops are made to order and will take several weeks to be sewn once I place the preorders! ✷ ✷
Anyone in Eastern Tennessee, yes I did stand out in this weather for the photos 😂 I’m avoiding going back out for the rest of the day now!
