I really love making these little kimonos, the pattern is from one my Japanese books ISBN 4834715809
This one is jade green, lined with a cotton print. I wanted to stamp the little kappa on the front with white fabric paint, but the white wouldn't show up dark enough so I made a little patch instead.
They cross over the chest and fasten with two ties
This one is white muslin lined with pink, with a little embroidered house. There is sashiko embroidery around the sleeves and neckline
Here is a close-up of the embroidery. The house and tree are wool felt, the rest is embroidered.
It took me forever to get good pictures of them. I have followed all sorts of advice, but I still don't really know what actually produces a good picture. I just have to take lots and hope at least one is okay.
