Happy 4th Birthday TMS. Here’s a pattern that took 4 pieces!
I had been planning a kimono style over layer for evening for some time. Seems I was well ahead of the curve here as clearly they are currently having a very mainstream fashion moment. I’m fine with that as my evening wardrobe is designed to be as timeless as possible and I believe that soft drapey jackets like this will always be chic for evening and in the meantime I will wear them with jeans and t-shirts too. Winning all round.
This Kimono is a hack of the Esme Cardigan by my fav Named Clothing. I made some modifications as follows:
- Made the front into a single piece removing the pockets
- Narrowed the button stand to about 5cm
- Widened and shortened the sleeves, leaving off the cuff
- Added fringing to the hem
The gunmetal satin fabric was purchased at a school fair for $1 and the fringing was from Spotlight.
