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!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
