Description

I bought this jersey fabric almost exactly a year ago in Sydney’s Tessuti shop. It’s a soft, beautiful fabric but I didn’t know what to make out of it. So yesterday I saw the Color Twist Kimono Top on here and decided to try and make on myself.

I changed it into a dress, but otherwise I followed all the instructions. I really like the result and it only took me about two or three hours to make this. The dress is perfect for the coming holidays. I’ll wear it over legins or perhaps even over jeans.

    Thanks for trying the pattern! You can actually change up how you wear the garment once you are bored with the kimono style. I will take a picture and post it as soon as I can. Happy holidays!
