Kimono sleeve - Second chance

Added Feb 20, 2012

Madrid, Spain






After my first trial of Pattern Runway Kimono sleeve dress I decided to make some changes, using a circle skirt, a higher waist and lining.
I like it way more than the first one, it’s a pity this one is for my sister!

As the previous one , this dress called for a belt, and I opted for a simple wrap one (like this one).

Hope you like it!

    Hello Did you cut the skirt in an other piece of fabric, or is it the same piece from the top to the bottum of the dress ? Thks in advance

      The skirt is cut apart from the main body. It is a circle skirt attached with elastic to the upper body in the waist.
      Hope it helps! :)

    Circle skirt is great. The side view looks like the bra will be very visible anytime the arm is lifted. Is this the case?

      Hi Inna! I’m not sure, but I would say it is knit with a bit of stretch. Hope it helps ;)
