kimono looks

The cardigan kimono diy was a huge success! I’ve worn it a couple of times already. Here I’ve prepared three looks that show the versatility of the kimono.

Kimonos go great with shorts for a casual evening or a day full of errands.

Pair it with a dress for a more feminine look, perfect for a date or a girl’s brunch.

Substitute the typical blazer for a look that you can wear to the office.

I had seen some pretty cool looks on pinterest with kimonos and thought could make myself one since it doesn’t involve that much sewing. After finding this easy pattern that explained how to make one I took an old silky square top that had a very cool print, and went ahead with it!

Also, I bought back fringe at a local craft store to add as a trim to the hemline in order to make my kimono a bit more boho. If you try this, pay close attention while sewing it because the threads could clog your sewing machine, as it did indeed happen to me. I ended up sewing the fringe by hand, which worked out pretty well.
