Kimono - Simplicity 1318

I finished one of the items on my fall sewing list: a silk kimono.  
 







































I used a poly shantung that I got on clearance at Joann Fabrics for $3.50 yard.  The 4" fringe also came from Joann's.  I used 2-1/2 yards of fabric and 2 yards of fringe.  Total cost for supplies (including the pattern) was around $20.00.


I made a size medium,  and the only change I made was to leave off the sleeve bands.





Here's the back:
