New Look Kimono Jacket

I might have mentioned a while back that a friend’s mother went into a care home. She was an avid seamstress and had a pile of fabric which I inherited. I made a pair of culottes from this fabric as well a New Look Kimono Jacket. I tend to like New Look patterns. Not sure why but I just do.

You need: –

  • fabric
  • mathcing colour thread
  • sewing pattern
  • sewing machine
  • sewing scissors
  • pins
