Butterfly Kimono from Butterick 6065

Well, this was unintentional, me posting a kimono right after Jamie. Plus, we’re having a Kimono night at the Denver Sewing Collective’s next meetup. I’ve got kimono on the brain.

This was an super easy jacket to make. Basically a rectangle folded over and the side sewn where your arms go through. I like the drapey band that Butterick has here.

I bought the fabric from Colorado Fabrics last month. I was on break from a tailoring class upstairs and well, don’t let any of us loose at Colorado Fabrics for very long. We all can do destruction in a short amount of time. This fabric is a knit almost a tissue knit. It’s very soft and thin in an abstract print.

This is going to be a favorite pattern of mine and can see me making it again and again in more beautiful fabrics.

I also like that I can pair it with a heavy turtleneck or long sleeved T for wearing in cooler months.

Super easy project, great for a beginner. Can be completed in an hour.
