New York, New Yo...






Lace Kimono lined in silk with deep sleeve pockets, front tie and other details.

This is an easy and beautiful pattern that unfortunately has dreadful instructions. More details about construction can be found on my blog:

Material Notes

I used a stretch lace with a stretch silk lining.

    I’m now in the process of making this for my daughter, shes looking one to throw on over her bikini etc on holiday. I’m not going to bother with the instructions as i could’nt make sence of them and i’m not using lace anyway. why is there a side piece though?? x

      It is a side piece that creates a gusset under the arm – between the front and the back pieces. It’s an important piece. There are MUCH better instructions for the kimono on this blog:

      Happy sewing!
