Flowy kimono top.

October 13, 2010

I have a long standing love affair with flowing fabric. Sometimes I think I must live in  the wrong country or time period because we don’t really do the flowing fabric thing in my part of the world these days.

I try not to let this stop me though.

This is another kimono blouse made from McCalls 5233 (now oop) which is the pattern I used for the Montreal kimono blouse. This time, I  made view A sleeves which are wide and open from the elbow down. It does not make for the most practical shirt I’ve ever owned, but I enjoy it just the same.

Because I used chiffon fabric to make this blouse, I decided this was an opportunity to use french seams which I recently learned how to do. Even though it takes longer to do them, I think they create a nicer finish than my serger does so I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to them.

I’ve worn this a few times and received compliments.
