In summer of 2016, I discovered a big gap in my wardrobe. I didn’t have enough interesting tops for my work/life rotation. I purchased the Salme kimono tee and quickly made four in quick succession with silk remnants I had been collecting. This pattern is one of my ‘go to’ top patterns as it only needs a meter or less (normally 80cm is enough) of fabric. The kimono shape removes the hassle of fitting sleeves when working with silky fabrics
Here are the different versions I have created. Most fabrics were purchased from the Fabric Store.
I really like the wide facing and armbands on this pattern it finishes the garment off perfectly.
