Description

This is a tee-shirt made from a burnt orange cotton from Pixelink’s free 1 piece kimono tee pattern. I have made a kimono-ish top before from a vintage pattern and was keen to try this one as it was one piece thus without a shoulder seam. It meant that the initial piece of fabric I wanted to use was no where near big enough – so by making it as one piece it seems that you require much more fabric lengthwise.

I adjusted the sizing to make a tee which was more skimming than very loose and I also did not do the drawstring at the bottom. I made a across grain strip of the same fabric to make the neck binding.

This is a very simple pattern and easy to make. The neck binding was the most time consuming part. Overall it was a good experiment to try. I don’t know that I would use this pattern too often though as it takes much more fabric than other patterns I have.
