Remember this Leap Day refashion that almost didn’t happen?
I love the Springy jacket that the upper portion of this dress became (Despite the fact that Indiana has had a total of 3 days of Spring so far…). But I still had the entire skirt portion left as a scrap.
I hate to waste such gorgeous fabric so I decided it would make a perfect kimono.
I know, right? ANOTHER kimono, Laura? Yeah. I’m a little addicted…
If it’s any consolation, I did a different method this time. I wanted a “cocoon” vibe, which is why I cut on the angle like that.
Because the original side seams were still in tact, I had to cut the seams at the gaps where my arms would fit through.
I didn’t mention this earlier, but I did use a serger on the top piece of the scrap (the original waist). This material REALLY frays…
Finish the raw edges (my go-to for this fabric is a rolled hem) and voila!
It may look sunny and warm but it’s still quite chilly 😦
I love this tree in my neighbor’s yard. I don’t know what it is, but I think it’s gorgeous!
I really like the style of this kimono. I’m anxious to try it out on stretchy fabric. I bet that will be really easy as stretchy material doesn’t fray and it’ll drape a little bit better.
This material is so pretty and lightweight, though, I couldn’t help myself. I absolutely love it. Is it overkill to have 2 very similar looking refashions? Perhaps. When I get on a kick though, I just have to ride it out until it passes 🙂
I’m curious, which of these 2 refashions do you prefer? It won’t hurt my feelings, I promise… Unless, ya know, you’re just blatantly rude about it 🙂
