Title: Kimono Hoodie from Green and White Sheet ((thanks Radish_Spirit))
Post by: SinDoll on December 09, 2006 10:08:47 PM
So i jumped on the same wagon my friend Rachikus jumped on, in the wonderful land of kimono hoodies.


Unfortunately, i didn't really make it Kimono-ish  :-[
but its easy enough to change the front of it

It's so much cuter when I'm not standing in a bathroom

Geez... smile love..

I used Radish_spirit's tute (( http://www.jungledread.com/tutorials/hoodie_kimono.pdf )) to get the hang of things, and then did my own thing. I made extra long ties which are stitched to the middle of the back. All the edgings i've done like 5 rows of stitching, to go with the karate gi look ((i'm going to make a white one to wear to my boyfriend's comps)) and i made it long sleeved. i love it, it so comfy. Lately I've been having issues with the things i've been trying to make, but this turned out pretty good ((Except for the front wrap bit)) so I'm just going to accept it's imperfections and deal with it

((I went to WestSideTattoo last week, and checked out their Lip Service stuff. I was shocked at the quality of lip service stuff! the things i make to sell are So much better quality! I felt good. I guess non-sewers don't really look at things the way we do. lol))

The Fabric UP CLOSE ((really up close...))

Instead of going all the way to the side and then straight down, Im going to take a diagonal line to it.

So waddya reckon? It reminds me of a bed jacket   :-\ lol.

BAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAH It IS a really awesome males torso I found at a dumpster ((i have four)) and i made him a little faux fur skirt and painted leopard print on him and pierced hisnipples. Anyway, my boyfriend 'cleaned' up and put my long wig on the torso's neck.
bbahahaha


Anyways, thanks for all the nice comments!

it works for me.  It's a pdf, so you might just need to give it a second to download.

cute kimono, btw.  Love the fabric and the way you added the hood.  I'd love to see the front when you change it.

Super cute!  The design worked really well with the fabric you picked - it looks very fresh and comfy at the same time.

That is VERY cute! It could be lightweight or heavier, depending on the material used. Great job!

Thanks for the tute link, btw.

This is soooo neat!!  What a great idea and you did a terrific job!  I'd love to make one of these for my daughter's birthday.  Unfortunately, I'm about 200+ projects behind... :-[
