Beautiful!  Smiley

Very nicely done and great fabric for a kimonoshirt too.

However, if you happen to be around an actual Japanese person, they'll freak on you.  Kimono tied in the front signify death.

That was useful information, thought about doing something kimonostyled.

Very cute!  I love kimono-style clothing.

However, if you happen to be around an actual Japanese person, they'll freak on you.  Kimono tied in the front signify death.

It's gorgeous!  Great job!  And I'll remember that tip about tying a kimono!  Don't want to invite danger!

I like a little danger!   Wink
I'll have to keep that in mind if I ever make another one.
I hummed and hawwed about making it tie in the front or the back. Visually, I like it...but....eep, death!  hehe

Thanks for all the wonderful comments, everyone.  Smiley

Very nice. That fabric looks much better as your kimono-inspired shirt than it ever did as a men's shirt.

Yes, awesome imagination -- I would've just thought "men's ugly paisley shirt". It turned out totally cute.

Wow! that's amazing recon...I'm going to the goodwill tomorra and get me some men's shirt. One question, though...how much bigger was the shirt than you are? thanks and yet again, awesome work!

The shirt was a men's size small. Of course, I'm only 4'11", so it was almost down to my knees and it was fairly baggy. You end up removing a lot of material, though, so you don't need it to be huge. But, bigger doesn't hurt, of course.  I'm trying to draw up a tutorial so you can see how I threw it all together. I'll post when I get it done!  Smiley

I put up a tutorial! And don't worry...it's not that hard...take a stab at it, you'd be surprised at what you can do.  This is only my 4th piece of clothing. I found just jumping in head first really helped.  Smiley
Happy sewing!
