turning japanese i think so

Moving on on the whole "everyone's having babies" thing, I've made some baby kimonos, for another coworker. I may give both or I may not, but they certainly didn't take long to make! I'd two linen skirts, one old, one new, and neither fit but the material was nice so I cut them up for this project!

I know, the ties go different ways. I couldn't remember which was the "boy" way, so I just made one of each. :)

Here's a picture of the back, showing where the centre seam on the skirt was:

And here they are together:

The pattern is the Simple Kimono by Habitual: well written with lots of clear pictures. I'd make it again!

They look great - I've just downloaded the pattern, hopefully I'll have time to have a play with it this weekend.
