Blue kimono teeshirt

I’m still working through my backlog of posts to show you everything I’ve made over the past fortnight, but the good news is, I’ve taken a lot of photos this weekend and should have enough for at least five delectable nuggets of sewing glee to share over the next few days.

Last weekend I revisited an old friend, the kimono sleeved-top of Simplicity 4020 which you may remember from when I made it in chocolate brown way back in October 2006.

This time I sewed it up in one metre of gorgeously soft cotton interlock from Pennine Outdoor (in “sapphyr” colour) and yet again, it’s a wonderfully comfortable yet slightly offbeat teeshirt. Extremely easy to sew and extremely easy to wear, this is one of the best beginner patterns around! I’ve got no issues with this pattern at all, and it’s quick and easy enough to make in an afternoon with a spare metre of knit fabric. What’s not to love?
