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!
Check out this Famous Dress Designer Georgette!
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!
