Yukata for Little Misfit

Today is my daughter’s UN day at school. I thought of this kimono last minute the night before….it was hell to make! But worth the effort, I guess :)

Material Notes

not sure what kind of material…I got this from the factory…I think it was a leftover from chair upholstery

      it wasn’t the easiest project…did a lot of cutting and I used a Japanese pattern book to make this :) Bought it in Kinokuniya, there should be 1 in Takashimaya, just look under the children’s dresses section. Good luck :)

    Your daughter is a beauty. This is a great job, especially in two days. I love yukatas for around the house. It’s one thing you can wear that doesn’t bind or rub the skin while not getting you odd looks from the UPS deliveryman/woman. I’m setting up my fourth one now; I just wish I could find the left sleeve. I may have to make a new set. :( Cordially, Nehmah

    One tip: if you make her Kimono or Yukata put on, left side must be top of the wrap(so opposit side what you did). Maybe nobody cares, but it looks a bit uncomfortable feeling for Japanese.

      what you have done is actually perfect! Yukata is just casual wear, so there is not really big rule to wear. Just put left side front is a big thing in Japan. About kimono, I don’t have any idea, so just like you! Please just enjoy sewing more and exostic things!
