I made this loose fitting batwing kimono top from McCall’s 6510 sewing pattern. I made view B with the inverted pleat on the front. I used some narrow leather trim for the neckline and made french seams for the shoulder seam. Easy pattern to make with only two pattern pieces. The challenging part was working with the slippery silk material. With slow and careful sewing I powered through it in about 4 hours.
