Making a Kimono, The Third Times a Charm!

kimono108

So this journey wasn’t originally intended to fit into the Monthly Stitch August challenge, it just worked out that way. So how does this Kimono fit into the challenge well since I had to sew that band three times so I’m adding this into the challenge mix. This pattern Simplicity 1108  EASY-TO-SEW pattern and I think that’s where I went wrong. Me thinking that an EASY-TO-SEW is really beneath my sewing skills, I was thinking it may take me like an hour to get this thing done. So here I was putting the few pieces together and  then came that damn band. It took me three times to get it right! I was defeated from this project that I thought should take me an hour and ended up taking two days! I did redeem myself when it was all said and done, more pics and deets on the shorts on my BLOG.
