Pattern Description:
Loose fitting kimono style top with short sleeves
Pattern Sizing:
4-16. I made a 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a very simple pattern consisting of a front, back and neck facings. I like the simplicity because it's easy to change and make over again. The pattern didn't include seam allowances.
Fabric Used:
100% Cotton Voile from Fabricmart Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lowered the neckline 3/4" and added embroidery to the front and crochet trim to the neck and hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would definitely sew this again.
For more details on how I did the embroidery and construction, visit my blog.
