So I went off the beaten path and decided to make myself a Kimono (actually called a Hanten Jacket) and now it is almost finished. Sleeves and collar is basted on and waiting for a good sit down to just hand stitch it down. I have also been working on (in my head) a closure for it besides the usual obi type waist band.
The fabrics were a gift to me a long time ago by my BF and I never had a use for them and then recently the light blub went off. :)
I am pretty happy with the garment and have been working on it for two weeks (off and on.)
I have also been quilting and beading, changing banks, working cooking, gardening, etc. Off to start TODAY!
