I had no idea what I wanted to make with my lovely Nani Iro, but when I saw Lunatepetal’s version of the Kimono shirt (also in nani iro), I thought that was it! I copied her in making the V neck, but I also added darts in front, so mine’s not reversible. I also lengthened mine into a dress. It’s a little baggy, but with a belt it looks great.
I did a blind hem by hand on all the edges, with a bias tape on the neckline. I love the breezy flow of the fabric—can’t wait for hot summer days to be here!
