The Smallest Kimono





I can finally post this! I made this tiny kimono for my friend's newborn as a little gift- we just went over to see him for the first time today (I didn't want to ruin the surprise- my friend reads my blog).
I made it using Heather Ross' pattern from her book.
It's easy, and a great way to use up smaller scraps of fabric.
The body is made from Nani Iro 2008? '09? Pocho, and the trim was initially purchased from Superbuzzy (forgotten the maker).
Really fun little project.

That is the cutest thing! It looks so easy to make. Maybe I'll start with something like this when I get my sewing machine soon.
