In House Patterns Kimono Tee #2

2014-10-12 15.57.03

This is another garment that was sewn and photographed a few weeks ago. It’s the In House Patterns Kimono Tee, made pretty much exactly the same as the last one – but obviously in different fabrics.

The back yoke is laser cut neoprene from Darn Cheap Fabrics. The mustard knit is very soft and semi-sheer, and was in stash. From somewhere. Can’t remember.

The two fabrics were vastly different in weight, but still attached without much trouble. Construction was shared between the sewing machine and the overlocker. The final top looks bigger than the last one, and the neckline is definitely lower despite cutting the same size. One of those examples of the fabric type making a difference to the fit!

The new True Bias Sutton Blouse looks like an extremely similar shape to this, but is designed for wovens rather than knits. It will be interesting to see it pop up on blogs.

  1. You really should get a commission or affiliate fee for the patterns that people buy after seeing them here! *grin* I’ve just bought this one – I’m making a few t-shirts for my sister who is a big girl and so the normal fitted tees just don’t look good. This will be a great pattern for her, and I’ll wear it as well! Gotta love multi-sized patterns!

    This second kimono tee is lovely, the colours go together really well and look great on you!

  2. Hello Lara. Did you see the lovely shout out about you on Fabrikated sewing blog ? She has a wonderful blog and is very knowledgable about colours . Her latest posts are discussing body shapes and dressing according to this. I think your mention is in this post.

  3. WHY didn’t you call me and tell me that this pattern was awesome!?!? 🙂

    I bought it the other day and sewed up a test (that I fully intend on wearing) last night. Fantastic. A really great pattern that just fits so nicely!!
