I love this! You've convinced me to stitch it up. Love the obi.

I wish I had your tiny waist so I would look as good in this dress as you do! And I love it with leggings!

Very cute kimono dress! Yours is so much nicer than the pattern envelope.

Cute, and especially with the leggings.

Your dress looks fantastic, especially with the red belt. Terrific fabric choice for the style.

Great kimono - but especially how you've paired it with your obi belt and leggings. Fun, comfy and stylish!

A stylish and distinctive dress, particularly with leggings and the obi.

Your picture should be on the pattern cover!! You look so nice in this's a shame the fabric is not holding up very well.

What a nice take on this pattern - I like the self-binding, which is something I particularly like to use to finish edges. I don't like the wide banding-facing stuff much. Us short people don't need all that. Your "obi" is a real knockout too - I love it! The width is great.

What a great dress. You had me at flutter sleeves. :) I'm surprised too that this pattern has been looked over. Thanks for the review.

This is a cute kimono dress! Thank you so much for reviewing this pattern. I have it in my stash and was very curious about how it would look on someone; I think I never made it 'cause I think the dress is really unflattering for the poor model on the envelope, but at the same time I was drawn to it 'cause the tech drawing looks good. I'm glad it worked for you and I might give it a try someday.
