I found this cute, soft and snuggly flannel fabric and thought it would be nice as a kimono robe. Making the kimono was so easy! Just some large rectangles and a front trim, belt loops and belt!I then found this Alexander Henry Kantan Kanji cotton print which (even though the robe has Chinese wording) I thought would be nice to pair with the robe as a nightie. The bottom of the nightie is cut on the bias to allow more stretch. I am in the process of making Jane boxers with the left over flannel, and a camisole top with the left over cotton print. I am pleased with how both the robe and the nighty came out. My husband wants a kimono robe for himself now, and my daughter: more boxers …these patterns will get LOTS of use, I’m sure :-)
