Mixed print georgette 1 piece Kimono Top with my adaptation of asymmetrical hem line and scarf collar embellishment. pixline created and posted this simple and very adaptable pattern. I used inspiration from a recent trip to the store Anthropologie to get the look of feminine, airy, drippy and layers with mixed prints and my touch: a hint of rock-n-roll edge. Collar was truly serendipity in that I was looking at a scrap of fabric to see if I wanted to finish the neckline with the called for band. The collar is a more refined and finished piece of fabric left over from another project and worked well for me. The “tails” produced three pieces that allow for wearer to wear the blouse versatile. Top can be belted and worn with shorts, skirts, jeans, pants, suits, sweaters, jackets…anything.
