I was inspired by JJ1’s Kimono/Naomi hooded jacket. I used the Lydia Hoodie variation pattern, but modified it so it opened in the front and had a wraparound obi belt closure. I used some fun wooden buttons as closures.
I’m pretty happy with the final project but I find that it wrinkles up near the top button. I might have to put in a hook-and-eye closure to help keep it straight, but I’m open to suggestions! :-)
