Kimono


Kimono

Here it is the kimono top I made without a pattern. The shirt has 2 full front panels and has a hidden tie inside on the right. The fabric I used for the ties is still from the huge scrap pile my neighbor gave me. I cut many of the pieces to size myself! It was a little tricky since I don't quilt but I don't think you can tell. The sleeves are in 2 parts. The first time I made the shoulder it was too small. So I remade the upper portion and just added the quilted strip to hide the seam.
Now that I know what I'm doing. I'm going to do some alterations mainly at the neck and shoulders. I wanted it to b e more fitted and it's sort of too wide for her. Plus the hidden tie, I may add button instead!

So cute! I love the fabric. And really, if you hadn't told us, I would have thought the band around the arm was just being extra stylish to match the band arround the waist!
