Kimono Top

Added Aug 22, 2007

I used the Tara top pattern but 1 size smaller (since it just has short elastics for the front and back and there is an extra 2-inch trimming in front). The sleeves were taken from the Dolman how-tos.

Material Notes

Italian silk, satin (trimmings)

    This is wonderful and very versatile. I don’t actually like the sleeves on the original pattern but the dolman sleeves look great. Fab job!

    I love both of these alterations. You have definitely embodied the spirit of “open source” with your changes. Thanks for sharing! I cannot wait to see how you did it.

    Thanks guys! I will be posting some pictures on the pattern alteration next week. I might be doing this again, I don’t like it too loose :)

    Wow! I would never think that this is the Tara top! :D Could you, please, show us how you did it? I think this is a version of Tara I would really appreciate. :-)
