Kimono Wrap Top

March 5, 2012

This is the second time I’ve made up this pattern – Advance 7701 from the 1950’s.  It was the first vintage pattern I bought, and the first one I sewed, so it was great to come back to it. I used a wool mix fabric which has a fair bit of stretch – this came in very handy for wrapping the top around my not-quite- 1950’s-sized waist!

Verdict? I really love it – the  colour, the kimono sleeves, the vintage look of it and the cosy, cosy feel of the wool mix.  I know I’m going to wear this a lot.  More details and pictures can be found on my blog, Handmade Jane. x
