When I saw the fabric with the trim, I knew I wanted to make a kimono. I decided to make the Simplicity 8172 version A.
I did not follow the pattern exactly. I decided to cut my fabric so that I did not have a seam down the center back. I also added the trim to each piece, before sewing them together.
I really love how my kimono turned out and now need to make a rust colored top to wear under it. In my photos I'm wearing New Horizon's Portlander Pants made with Dark Blue Heathered Athletic Brushed Poly from Zenith & Quasar Fabric.
