Description

This is something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. I love these kimono jackets I’ve been seeing but they are way too expensive for something so simple. So I finally found the right fabric and it cost me less than $15. I love it ! Now all I need is some warmer weather lol.

    It’s a great jacket! Don’t you just love it when you can make something you like yourself for much less than it would have cost you in the store? that’s what’s so great about sewing!
