Description

A kimono dress made from my blocks. This might have been a result of reading Memoirs of a Geisha again! This is a mock wrap dress. This is the first time I have drawn a design before making the actual garment :) Originally, I meant for it to have long sleeves, but after a while walking around the house with the dress on, I found it too flashy, I might cut it as shown in the picture.

    This is beautiful! Great job! I also think that is the perfect fabric! I just read that book also, and found myself wanting to see all of the beautiful kimonos they were describing. I rented the movie but was very disappointed, although the kimonos were lovely :)

    Thanks guys! I decided not to cut the sleeves as well :)

    maha1965: I did draw the pattern. This was made just from my blocks.

    I like the long sleeve version more, too! It seems more elegant to me. The short version would probably work better for me if you had some long-sleeved fitted top under it… Just a suggestion. The fabric is gorgeous either way. ;-)

    Beautiful choice of fabric, and very flattering on you. I also love that you included your concept sketch.
