The Kimono Dress

Project Details

Pattern: McCall's 5137
Fabric: 100% cotton

None really. Instead of using three different fabrics, I only used two. Do you have any idea how frustrating it is trying to match all of those different prints? I guess you have to have the visual talent of a quilter. I first heard about this dress on A Dress A Day and I knew that I had to make it. This is McCall's version the Duro Olowu dress that every designer has a version of... just see the variety at Nordies. Simplicity also has a slightly different variation of this dress. I'm not sure if I'll try it, but it is cute. Overall, I really like this pattern. I will probably make it again and use a silk chiffon so that it will have a better drape.
