A kimono sleeve dress made from a stretch knit – what could be simpler to sew or wear? I made a few changes to the pattern: the sleeves finish so low they are almost cut to the waistline which shows far too much side cleavage for my liking, so I increased the height of the side seam and sewed a new arm seam (see photo); I also drafted a facing for the neckline to avoid having any visible topstitching.
