Venus Kimono 2


I’ve made another Venus Kimono in a lightweight cotton voile I picked up from Darn Cheap Fabrics. I thought I’d sew up another one up to show how you can style it. Kimonos can look very funky and stylish if they are styled the right way.....

Patchwork Pullover Top



This top was literally made from scrap fabric. Usually when I go away for a weekend to my in-laws who live in a beachside town, I pack a few sewing supplies just incase the weather is bad....

Venus Kimono pattern release


Last month I blogged about the Venus Kimono which I had drafted and sewn. I had a lot of requests for a pattern  for it so voila here it is.
The pattern is only $6 AUD as a PDF download and is yours for a lifetime!

Buy Venus Kimono Relaxed

Buy Venus Kimono Oversize

My original pattern is a relaxed fit with pleats at the shoulder and a nicely shaped curved hem. It has French seams and a rolled hem which are both really easy sewing techniques and give your Kimono a professional finish. I also drafted up an oversize pattern for those wishing to have a little more  "swish" and  is designed to hang generously over the body.

I made the oversize Kimono up in a camouflage printed lightweight cotton. I whipped it up in about 3 hours total from start to finish. Kimono's are a great addition to any girls wardrobe. Great for covering up when the evenings get a little cooler or if you just want to cover your shoulders when the sun is beating. They look super stylish too!
