My daughter asked for this for her birthday. I thought it would be fairly simple — kimonos are glorified rectangles. But I was really challenged by creating “authentic” sleeves and the slippery silk layers were like herding cats. She was very happy happy with it — and that’s all that matters.
The pattern was an old one (similar to Simplicity 5685). The robe is made of silk charmeuse (I think) and the sleeves are lined with a navy blue charmeuse. A number 9 needle skipped stitches on more than two layers so I did most of the robe with an 11.
