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!
I'm in my 30's but still feel 18 on good days. I have two darling daughter's, who compliment me when they want what I'm making. I have a BFA in metal/jewelry but no real desire to do anything with it. I'm technically a SAHM but I work for my husband's business and myself when time permits. So I'm very busy all the time! I love to knit, felt, sew, embroidery, and do crafts. I like a challenge as long as it goes quickly. I'm a mom I have major time constraints! I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up but what I'm doing now is working.
