An adaptation of Pixelink’s Kimono sleeve pattern (which appears to have been taken down from this website. Note: I cannot remove the link to the rock’n’roll kimono sleeve pattern for some reason- this is not the one I used). This top is made for work so prettied up a bit :)
Lots of modifications as follows:
Made in a woven not a stretch, so side gussets inserted to allow more freedom of movement.
Pleated bottom edge added for extra length.
Facing and button trim added to the neckline.
Japanese voile remnant.
