i know, i know, i just said it on my last post that i want to try sewing like i used to, giving it time & making it A-perfect rather than just making it as quick as possible so i can wear it right away.
but i can’t help it once in a while. like for this kimono, all i did was cut the pieces without measuring them, then sewed most of the seams with the overlocker, and finished the edges… and yes, i was done! i believe it only took about 3 hours from cutting the fabric till the last stitch was in place.
the fabric was bought in 2013, prior to my moving to my current work place. i already planned to make it as a simple kimono, and yet for some reason i never picked it up from my closet. now, my lovely kimono, it’s your turn to shine!
in my mind, i wanted to make the print fall on the sleeves. but when i realized that the print was to big to be shown completely on the sleeves, i changed my mind. now from the back and front side, the fishes are all on the same side.
i haven’t made up my mind yet if i would ever wear this kimono outside of the house or will it just be my “dressing gown” for use at home. since it was done in a rush and without any careful planning, the sewing isn’t really that neat.
