Description

My daughter wanted a kimono for her holiday but the one she liked was way to expensive. Mum to the rescue lol. I got the photo sent and luckilly i was able to get similiar fabric from one of my ebay sellers i use constantly, she sells ends of rolls and all her fabric is fab.

I had a choice of two kimonos from burda but kelsey liked this one. Clio did a fabulous one of these and thanks to her i got a good link to making it.The origonal one in burda is lace so i just did my own thing on this. I lined it with Heavyweight cotton.fabric as the tie dye jersey was quite light. I added a stretch panal down the centre back seam partly for comfort and partly because i did’nt have enough cotton. The fringe was added by hand and i have to say i like this and my daughter is now on her way to the airport wearing it so i’m happy x

Material Notes

jersey and cotton
6"fringing for the trim

    Very beautiful- it’s one of the best kimono I’ve ever seen and to say that your daughter looks perfect in it has no sence – nobody could look better!!! I’m impressed with using the fringe – it’s absolutely nice and it would never occur to me. Your ideas are always so inspiring, Mary: I surely want a kimono, too:)

      Thank you so much oksana, i love this kimono and could’nt wait for my daughter to see it.she loved it which made me very happy indeed. I bought 3 metres of fabric on ebay but i did’nt like it when it came, it was for a dress but it looks like swimwear fabric. I’m going to make a bikini a matching top and kimono wrap for myself for holiday. I’ll model the kimono and top but not the bikini lol x

      thanks ellen, she’s of to bulgaria for a week the lucky thing. kelsey said she can wear the kimono with her shorts her jeans and over a bikini so its useful It reminds me of something from the 70’s with the fringing, fashions always come back round again don’t they x

      Lucky Kelsey :) I’m sure she will be wearing the kimono all the time – I would love to have this! :) Whatever you sews – it’s great Mary – and you have an eye for gorgeous fabric! and you’re right, the fashions always come back, normally every 20-years :-)
