Eleven little kimonos, ready to be made into blocks for the geisha round robin. The pattern came from the Haru Kaze pattern for In The Beginning fabrics. LINK here to the pattern pdf. It is partly paper pieced.
The color theme is ivory, tan and black. There were 12 little kimonos, but one was not the right size for some reason. I still can't figure it out - I miscut something, yet the block went together fine - it was just an inch and a half too short. Stay tuned for progress on these little blocks as I put them together and into a border.
Then, I picked up two patterns for ebay. The nightgown pattern, Simplicity 8775, is from 1978. I like long nightgowns. Makes one feel more feminine. This one is elasticized at neck and wrist and looks very easy to make. The second pattern, Simplicity 4134, is not as vintage - no date, but I think it is from the past five years or so. Nice asian top that I hope to use with some great fabrics.
