Ottobre "Kukerrus" Kimono

Me 1 : Jacket 0. It almost was the other way around.

I think for every stitch I sewed I unpicked 3. No idea why, just silly little mistakes. One of those days I just should have left the sewing machine alone. Anyway, this is the Kukerrus Kimono from the Ottobre 4/2008 magazine which just arrived for the Princess. She seemed very excited I was making her a jacket and made me promise she could wear it tomorrow. I have some red cord for a matching skirt too.

The kimono is so cute. I like the details of the contrasting fabric. Believe me I have had many go arounds with a sewing project. This is a pattern I would also like to try.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. The Princess wore it out today and we actually got asked where we bought it from! Came home a very happy person..

WOW - It is absolutely beautiful. Well done. Must have been an unbelieveable feeling when asked where you bought it from!! I'm not likely to ever be asked that!

ooh, that looks lovely, I wonder if it comes in grown up size, it's something that I might wear myself. Going to have to have a go at one of these kimonos soon.

The kimono was worth the effort, it looks great. The fabric combo is stellar!
