1920s Tulip Kimono

October 25, 2011

Hello all! First time posting on the new site so here goes.

This is the 1920s Tulip Kimono from Decades of Style made with a rayon “Van Gogh” print and a chambray contrast. Closes with a loop and button posie. The robe is unlined and all the seams in the chambray are covered while most of the seams in the rayon are French seams. It’s very comfortable!

    1. Thanks, Katherine! Yes, this particular pattern was pretty straightforward. Some of the instructions assumes you know a thing or two about certain techniques (like seam finishes), but I think even a beginner can make it without too much effort. It comes together easily. The one thing that’s tricky is matching the collar and band pieces at the points, which I didn’t do as well as I should have, but it’s not noticeable unless you know the pattern well!
