I know that it has been awhile since i posted, but I have been busy working on this. A friend of mine gave me a beautiful old kimono. It had several spots and holes. I took it on as a challenge to see if I could make a shirt with the good parts. I had to piece the pocket with three pieces to get a pocket. The left front I had to use another kimono in black. There just wasn't enough. The design and colors in this fabric was just so beautiful. The feel of the silk was wonderful.

It was a long kimono and was lined with another beautiful print fabric. So now I am working on making a shirt from this lining. I can't wait to see how it comes out.
