last year i went on holiday to japan, and just had to buy some fabric while i was there. but kimono silk is expensive, so i bought a few remnant pieces. this pinkish-red maple pattern was one of them.
i bought a cheap grey singlet and cut the long piece of kimono silk into two rectangles, which i hand-stiched on at the armholes. the kimono silk is slightly pleated at the front and back so that it sits in a more bell-shaped way.
this idea is a good way to use up some smallish bits of fabric you have lying around (the silk pieces were about 20cm wide by 50cm long).
