Sew & Tell: Summer Kimono Style Top


I dusted off (literally) my sewing machine for the first time this summer. The poor old thing needs a bit of TLC, and some cleaning, but it is otherwise still doing great 7 years on. I sewed a simple kimono top based on this tutorial by Elle Apparel. I opted to shorten the hem, sleeves, and I added a cowl band to the neckline. It's made from this wonderfully soft tissue knit in pale purple with white cherry blossoms. It's super comfy, and if summer nights get a bit chilly, easy to throw on.
