I’m not one for following trends, but I do know that kimonos are in. I’ve seen more kimonos and floor length dusters this season than ever. After seeing a friend wearing one, I had to make my own because it looked so comfortable and made for an easy outfit. I paired it with my favorite skinny jeans, brown pumps, and a plain white v-neck tee.
I picked up the pattern during Joann’s big pattern sale. I talked about it in my Huge Pattern Haul blog and video. While picking up the patterns, I browsed the aisles for potential fabric and immediately fell in love with this tropical rayon fabric. I was even more convinced to use it for this pattern after feeling it. It is amazingly soft!
I sewed view A of this pattern in a size medium. This view is designed to fall below the knee, which makes it perfect for wearing with leggings. I decided to wear it open; however, while playing around with it I discovered that it’s be perfect when bloused over a skinny belt.
Let me know what you think of this fabric and pattern in the comments below! Check out my review on this pattern on my Youtube channel.
