Are you so excited that I'm back here with a sewing project? (Since as you all know, I've been keeping myself very busy with house projects lately!) Today's post is actually a tutorial over on Make It and Love It. I don't sew for myself very often, but every time I do I always think, "I should totally do this more often!"
And yet I don't. You mamas know what that's like, right? There are just too many other projects that need to happen! (Or at least that little people want me to make happen!) So if I am going to make something for myself, it has to be 1) EASY and 2) WORTH it. Yah, it can't be to make a project that I could buy somewhere premade for $5.
AND that's what I LOVE about this kimono. I've always thought kimonos were super pretty, but some I have seen have come with a really expensive price tag. Plus it's super quick to make? You can whip one of these up in less than 1 hour. WIN.
It's the lace though that really makes the kimono though in my opinion. It was upcycled from an old pillowcase! And you'll have to hop over to Make It and Love It to see the back--which has more LACE-Y goodness. So hop on over for more pics and the full tutorial!
And in case you wonder what else I've been up to...since I haven't been sewing as much. Here is a picture from our latest adventure.
We found a creek! With tadpoles. And when you are 4 and 6 (and maybe in your 30's...) that's pretty darn awesome.
