I have to admit, I wasn't sure how this kimono...or any kimono or duster...would look on me. And of course I wasn't fully dressed when I tried it on after I finished making it.
I used Simplicity 1108 - View A. I actually made this in December, so my excuse for not wearing it was that it was too cold and it would not work under a coat. So I stuck it in the closet and actually forgot about it!
I finished the sleeves with a narrow hem, as I didn't want to lose any of the print there. I spent too much time print matching to lose it to a hem! LOL!
