I borrowed my mothers kimino ( in my defense: she didn´t use it). The thing is……. It never returned.
I didn´t have any use for it as a kimino so I cut it up and sewed it back together as a poofy top.
I made the buttom piece like a skirt or a wide panel ( don´t know how to explain it). Used the arm pieced from the kimino as the front/neck-tying panels and sewed them on to the buttom piece together with an elastic. The elastic is an easy way to make it fit to your body/ and of course it also makes a zipper unnessecary.
my moms kimino.
But all pieces of fabric can be used. It is a very good project if you have a piece of fabric lying around and no specific plans for it. It is a very easy pattern. More or less 3 panels.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
