Supercomfy kimono tee

Added Nov 21, 2010

Kuala Lumpur, Ma...






I bought this ribbed cotton jersey from a stash bin when I was in Hong Kong for a holiday, and was waiting for the perfect pattern to come along to use it on. Here’s the 1-piece kimono tee (SUPER PATTERN BTW). The sleeves are folded up wider so it kinda looks like they’re cuffed.

I love the way it hangs, I could wear this all day all night long as it is for lazy, comfy weekends, and just dress it up with a belt if I want to go out.

The sleeve holes are big huge for me, but again, I just love it as it is.. can you tell how much in love I am with this pattern? hehehe

    Do you still have the PDF for this pattern? It doesn’t look like it’s available anymore. :(

    Did you lengthen the pattern at all or just leave off the bottom hem and tie? It looks so comfy this way!

      i didn’t lengthen the pattern, i just left out the tie and hemmed a small hem. im usually a UK6/8, i used the smallest size, and somehow it does look kinda big on me huh? but you’re right, it’s really comfy.. i love lazing around in it!
