Description

My first project from a pattern! The material is loud, but I love it :-) Now I just have to sew a pair of elegant cream slacks and then I can dress the tee up or down.

I used pixelink’s kimono tee pattern, without the drawstring.

    Great job! Love the bold fabric and it would look good with a pair of black pants too. I have been wanting to make this top, have the pattern, just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Is it as easy to put together as everyone says? Happy Sewing!

      Yup, it’s incredibly easy, and very forgiving, which is useful for a novice like me… I’m definitely going to use it again and again – the creative possibilities are endless!
