Using a kimono bargain to create a 70's blouse!

This was one of those bargain buys that had a good amount of fabric in it, ready for a refashion.


I wanted to use a vintage pattern that I have used once before, but I didn't quite have enough fabric in this kimono to fit in all the pieces?? So for a tutorial on how to make a full sleeve narrower, if you, like me, want to use a specific body shape, and are determined to make it all fit in to a limited fabric piece, have a look at my blog here


I love this piece of fabric, it really reminds me of the 70's!


And that collar shape, so of the time.
