Kimono Jacket







Simplicity 8172






I really like the back flounce on this jacket.




I used 2 different rayon challis prints I had in my stash.  They both came from Joann Fabrics.  I love the soft, flowing movement of the fabric.  And it's so cool on hot summer days.




I made a size large, with no alterations.  It's a little big on me.  If I make it again, I'll probably go down to a medium.



I added a small snap at the front seam line to hold it closed.



But I wear it open most of the time.

  2. It's a pretty kimomo - the black flounce is what makes this garment. Throw overs like this are just so useful to dress up casual basics when the need arises.

  3. So pretty. I was looking at this pattern a few days ago-I really like the back and I like that it has a little bit of structure. Such nice fabrics - I'm going to JoAnns today, must look at their challis. Great fabric for the heat!

  6. This is beautiful, but perhaps you might want to raise the seam between the 2 fabrics a few inches higher - (the pattern shows it right below the breast) mightlook a touch more proportioned for you.
