Description

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. For further construction details please see my blog: www.loweryourpresserfoot.blogspot.com

    That is indeed a very simple design and it is more like the colored stripes that makes the dress more beautiful. And it is quite easy to make one as the stitches are pretty normal if the fabric is cut in the proper and right way.
