Ah. Japanese kimono… long story that is… I already told (in the Tea party dress project) that I’m a Nancy Pena’s fan and the ultimate piece for me to make was that kimono, the very emblematic piece of her comic book (the kimono’s cat). And of course, I had never made a kimono before! I always choose the simple way… Please tell me I’m not the only one!!! ^^
Well, the difficult part here was that I needed to print the fabric with the cat pattern… hum… It’s made of cotton sateen and based on a traditional kimono pattern… But my lack of experience made this kimono totally unperfect!!! :) However, I’m sure to improve on my second kimono attempt!!! :D
Organic cotton sateen.
