I love kimonos. They're just so glamorous for lounging in. Maybe that's what drew me to this old picture, bought years ago at a flea market. Although I do love the fact that she's feeding a stuffed bird with a sugar lump. You can't really imagine people posing for photos like that any more can you?
Anyway, I do own something vaguely kimono-like. It's more of a wrap I suppose - cotton and quite short. I wore it to death when I was pregnant and it's perfect for wandering around the garden on a summer's morning. Will that ever happen again I wonder? Will it ever be warm out there?
I saw this pattern in an old copy of Making magazine. I'd love to try my hand at it but need some suitable fabric first. It would look good with jeans and a white vest underneath. Yet another project to add to the (ever growing) 'would like to...' list.
