Made by a Fabricista: Showing Some Kimono Love!

Sometimes other sewists and their amazing garments are the best inspiration!  I knew I wanted to finally jump on the Kimono craze, but wasn't sure how to go about it.  Until....I saw this gorgeous fabric!  







This fabric is a 100% Poly Georgette by a Famous Dress Designer and wow, it is so pretty!  As a bonus, it washed and dried perfectly and it feels amazing on your skin.  What more can you want?  




I chose a loose-fitting Kimono pattern to create this.  I knew I would love wearing it in the colder months with a long-sleeved shirt and boots, but also in the warm months with a skirt and tank.  

Here's the pattern I chose: McCall's M7200


The design is super simple, a perfect way to showcase a gorgeous fabric.  





 I lengthened mine by about six inches, added the long sleeves and omitted ties.  



This was a fast make up until the bands and hems.  I chose to hand sew all those since once it a great while, hand sewing can be so relaxing.


Thanks for reading!
