I used aquablue rayon for this project. I used pixelink’s pattern: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/1-piece-kimono-tee to create it.However, I did not have enough fabric to make it all one piece so I modified it and put in a shouder seam, so that the front is one piece and the back is one piece. Also, although the pattern suggested stretch jersey or knits, a non stretch fabric works just fine if you increase the size of the neck. The shirt works great for a fancier feel in this fabric, or a casual feel in other fabrics.
I also made the design less casual in removing the drawstring, and having just the two pieces sewn together for closure.
Rayon. But silk, jersey, knits, and cottons work!
