Lace Florence Kimono





When you really like something you need to make another one, right?  Especially when your daughter take the first one and wear it more than you do! Well, the first Florence Kimono was such a hit, I knew I needed another one.


This time I used a lace knit from Style Makers Fabric which is poly/cotton/lycra with a nice stretch.  The only problem is the drape isn't as wonderful as the chiffon but the lace makes up for it.


The pattern is available at IndieSew, download it this afternoon and have a great kimono for tomorrow.


I used french seams throughout and once again eliminated the front bias piece.  I just turned the front under twice.


I went from tucking in my tank to leaving it out - after seeing the pictures, the untucked is much better.

and then a close up of the fabric.



Sleeves and front.



I made this last week and wore it to dinner last night.  Perfect for the cool restaurant.  .

  1. I love the white lace. Such a versatile piece. You'll have to hide this one from your daughter! :)

  3. It's amazing how a change in fabric can make the same pattern look totally different! This version is beautiful as well!

    1. You are right, Tomasa, fabric is the important factor.

  4. Lovely kimono, and as you styled it here, looks wonderfully casual! I'm sure it could go the other way to a more formal look as well.
