Description

I made a kimono! This is a “free pattern” from the Love Sewing magazine, issue 5. I graded it down to a XS and it seems to do the trick.

I used a beautiful piece of Indian silk charmeuse bought in Dubai last year. I knew I wanted to make a loose fitting garment with it, and I’m really happy with how it’s turned out.

Lots more photos etc on my blog post
