Hello! I wanted to share my latest make on here. If you follow me on Instagram then you might know that I’ve been battling bronchitis over the past 4 or 5 days. It’s been rough! (especially since I just want to sew!) I have so many projects in the works. It’s definitely going to be a busy summer once I’m feeling better.

Anyway, back to the kimono! This pattern is the first Sew Over It pattern I’ve tried and I already have 4 more (they were having a sale…). It was a very quick make. I cut it out one night and was able to sew it up after dinner another. It’s only four pattern pieces! If you’re looking for a satisfying make you can knock out in a couple hours I definitely recommend this! It comes in two different lengths and I went with the shorter one. The fabric I used is Rifle Paper Co rayon. A local fabric store was having a half off sale and was so happy I remembered I ordered this pattern when I was there! I think they work perfectly together.

As far as fit goes, I made the smallest size and I think it’s just fine. It’s loose fitting so there’s not much to fit as far as adjustments. I’m so happy with this kimono jacket. It’s easy to just throw on to make an outfit a bit more exciting,  and it’s lightweight enough to wear in the summer to keep my shoulders protected from the sun. I definitely want to make another one. Maybe I’ll try the long version next time!
