1 / 2

I just finished making up this kimono using Shannon Fabric’s Embrace double gauze in ivory. I wanted a kimono that could double as a beach cover-up and as a piece that I can wear on the street in the summer for extra coverage. I used this Kimono sewing pattern from the 02/2010 issue and added some trim to the sleeve hems. I also omitted the front and hem bands to make the kimono more lightweight and breezy!

Also be sure to check out the tutorial post I did for Martha Stewart on making this kimono. Read it on Martha Stewart here!
