KIMONO JACKET

How beautiful is this dark floral kimono jacket I made?? It is super comfortable to wear and has a glamorous casual feel about it. Glamorous casual? Is that even a thing?? A kimono is perfect for layering at this time of year and instantly dresses up a pair of jeans and a jumper. In the summer you can wear it over a vest and a pair of cut of shorts...Oh the summer!
I used our Ramone viscose & linen mix fabric. This has a lovely textured finish but doesn't have the crease issues of pure linen. The drape and weight are just perfect for this type of garment. The pattern was a freebie (very awesome) from love Sewing Magazine issue 19.





If you fancy a go at making your our kimono try one of these beautiful linen and viscose mix prints...
