Liberty Silk Kimono

I purchased this silk specifically to make a kimono.


After trialing a few patterns lately, I headed back to the second pattern that I made – a free pattern from Sew Caroline.


I find the boxy style works better with my existing wardrobe.


I adore this kimono. The Liberty crepe de chine, which I purchased from Shaukat and appears now to be sold out, is really soft and light. The print is called Mistral.

006While I’m here I should also mention this newish top that I also made. Like my last white tank this was made with a large ladies t-shirt that I purchased on super sale at Millers (oh yeah!) for $3.
019Again, it’s a textured white knit. I think I’m a little obsessed with textured knit fabrics at the moment!

    It’s inspiring me to make one for myself…

  • I absolutely love this! Kimono, liberty aand silk! Can´t go wrong with this one.

  • Gorgeous kimono! You are rocking them. And I have to get my hands some awesome oversized tees. Such a great refashioning idea!

  • My favourite of your kimonos by far. And clever fabric source! I’d never think to buy new and refashion…..
