Sewing Sunday: Summer Kimono

Kimono's are definitely a favourite of mine to make. They are so simple yet effective and can be made in an afternoon!
This lovely, colourful fabric was given to me as a gift (thank you Kat!) and it's floatiness works really well in this summer style. 
The pattern this is based on is New Look 6072 from Project Runway. However, I made a few changes(!)... I cut the back on the fold (instead of two separate pieces), ditched the bands and tie, used French Seams and also extended it when cutting to get it just over knee length.
Something special and unique for summer :)
