I had some gorgeous silk that I was going to make a blouse out of but then I saw this fabulous kimono by Juliabobbin using this great online tutorial and I decided that I really needed to get on that Kimono bandwagon!!


The only change I made to the pattern was to add a collar, I think it finishes it off nicely, and I had just enough fabric left over to do it. If I had enough fabric left I would have done the same for the sleeves but oh well C’est la vie.

This is so easy to just throw on and wear over t-shirts and singlet tops, love love it!!
But the best fun was the photo shoot by the Munchkin, not bad for a nine year old and the twirling was her idea!
