How *hard* could it be?

Made this to wear to Sin City, hence the shortness

The kimono is made from Hallowe'en satin; sleeves are lined with the same and the rest is lined with cotton drape lining (nice and warm!)  The obi is made from satin, and has 6 steel bones.

The pattern was easy to follow, but it took a LOT of fabric and I made it about 20" shorter.

The bow and support on the obi are all hand sewn on, as well as the 5 hook and eye closures

Hre it is somewhat in action:

Thanks for looking.  C/C welcome  Grin

It's more simple than it looks.  Take the two lower edges, and match the seams together, right sides together, so that basically the 2 openings are facing each other.  Once it's stitched between the dots, and turned right side out, it creates a pocket out of the sleeve.   

I don't even have it at home with me right now, a friend borrowed it, otherwise I would take some pictures :\

Good luck Smiley
