So I picked up the fabric about 6 months ago in Glasgow without any concrete plans for it (quelle surprise!) I had a wee flick through my pattern stash and came across the New Look pattern and decided to make the kimono style jacket as the weather was still quite hot.
It was super easy to construct! Literally just a back, a couple of front pieces and the band for the edge. It needed a jolly good press before wearing, but since it was still about a million degrees at the time, I left it hanging on the back of the chair until the following weekend when it was cool enough in the morning to break out the iron.
I think its casual enough to just wear about the house, but still dressy enough to wear to work or dinner, or whatever it is that adults do.
Obviously the weather cooled down as soon as I'd got this together, so hopefully the kimono style doesn't become incredibly unfashionable by next summer 😂
