Do you remember a few posts back when I shared my yearly Shibori with Indigo post using Jacquard Products Indigo Tie Dye Kit? You can see the full post here.  It was to date my favorite outcome of all my dye sessions.  While dyeing I cut out a traditional kimono pattern using Organic Cotton Plus’s White Sateen.  The feel and sheen of the fabric was perfect for this kimono.  I loved how vibrant the Indigo dye came through on the natural fibers. Well, I finally had a chance after moving to sew the pieces together.  Still in time for summer! The kimono is a versatile piece that can be worn as a cover up at the pool or a statement piece for an evening out.  You can alter the pattern to be longer and/or wider.  The sashes add fit and can be tied in either the front or back.  See how to sew your own kimono in the steps below!
