New Look 6378 Kimono

A little late this week with a Blog post, but I have a few other things that are taking up some of my time this month and next month, but thank you for sticking around.

This week I have this beautiful Yellow flowing fabric that I purchased at Journals in Los Angeles, Ca, if you haven’t noticed I get a lot of my fabric in the Southern California area, there is more to choose from, compared to where I current shop for fabric. I used it make New Look 6378    Misses’ Easy Kimonos with Length Variations, View C.

I did serge all the pieces before I started sewing, although it wasn’t part of the instructions, I just wanted it to be clean on the inside and there was some fraying, just a tiny bit on the sleeve.

I was lucky that I had this matching Guitterman thread along with matching serger thread. I haven’t sewn with this bright yellow color of fabric before. My 2 favorite machines are my Babylock Aria Sewing machine and Babylock Evolution Serger.  These machines make sewing projects so easy for me.

I styled this Kimono with my favorite white jeans and a white tank top. It was the perfect outfit to keep me cool considering all the hot weather we are experiencing right now.

 

Here’s a short video that shows how it flows, thanks to my air conditioning vent that is right above my sewing space.
