Thank you so much for sharing your pattern/tute, your kimono dresses are always so beautiful made. I will have a go at making one after xmas as i have already made all my gifts for family and friends, but i know my 2 dds will look so cute in them.

Too cute, thanks for the awesome tute!

Hey Flutteringby, I'm almost always around and more than happy to help, just PM me! 

I've read over the tute again, I think I can see why you are confused.  Unlike some other kimono patterns, the sleeves are not in a continuous piece with the bodice.  As you can see, in the fourth picture if the original tute, the sleeve piece has been drawn to the left of the bodice:

I should have been clearer that this piece should be cut off the bodice and used independantly, I see what you mean about it disappearing!  I probably should have included this picture too:

It shows that there is a front left, small front right and sleeve (x2).

I hope this helps, and again, just let me know if you need anymore help!  Cheesy

Oh I'm going to have to try this one out too!!!

What kind of fabric is this? I want to say it's knit but we don't get cool knits like that where I am, at least I haven't found any.

I'm glad to help, just let me know if you get stuck again.  I actually got an order for one of these last night so at least it'll be fresh in my mind!  Cheesy

Yep, it's knit fabric.  It's really hard to get interesting fabric here too, but the website I think has the best selection is crybabysboutique.  Or the Fabric Fairy!  I have it shipped all the way to the UK as there is no good knits in the fabric shops or even online here!

This is a beautiful dress, and a Very well-done tute!  THANK YOU!

Isn't it funny that we like to see our little girls' bellies, but hate to see our own?!
