Accidental Kimono Poncho

Added Feb 27, 2010

I made a kimono style top completely by accident! It was originally a table cloth that I loved the fabric of, so I decided to make it a full circle skirt. However I made the hole for the waist way too big and was pulling it over my head to work out how to fix it when I noticed it would make a pretty banging kimono/poncho style top. I think it worked rather well. Looks pretty cool too. Excuse the lack of ironing in the pics!

Material Notes

100% cotton tablecloth.




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Ethnic, Vintage
