I'm finally taking the time to post my most recent project, which I am quite proud of. I have been quite anxious to attempt the Kimono pattern posted by Habitual, and have finally done just that! I am quite pleased with the results and cannot wait to make more!
Of course I didn't want to stop there. I needed to complete "the look" and went on the hunt for an idea. After stumbling upon our "old clothing" pile, I dug through and found a shirt my husband no longer wears and has decided to clear out.
The shirt, however, is a favourite of mine and has hardly been worn. Lucky for me, the material was the perfect match to the Kimono shirt. So I quickly whipped up a simply elastic waist skirt for the babe. This was done easily by cutting and using the bottom of the shirt (so that the shirt bottom became the skirt bottom). I sewed the "button up" part of the shirt together and got rid of that evidence - and made that the back of the skirt. A quick flower applique made the outfit complete and made me happy just to look at it.
And doesn't she look sweet in it?
