Kimono Robe Krazy
I’ve loved Kimono’s since I discovered them in high school when I discovered the world of Geisha’s.
I made a three kimono’s as a robe so I could have a two layer kimono robe where I could change the bottom layer.
I used Simplicity’s costume pattern 4080.
I wasn’t entirely happy with the first kimono (with orange collar) the stitching gathered a bit with the sheer fabric, esp. on the centre back seam which I later eliminated on the other two kimono’s.
It was also fiddly but enjoyable matching up the pattern so that it flowed like proper kimono’s do.
I decided to hand finish as much as I could on the last two I made and am happy with the results:-D
Will defiantly try to make the next kimono entirely by hand! :-D
