1920s Kimono Robe

Some pretty repro Art Nouveau fabric made it's way to the half-off cottons, so it was time to pick up the Decades of Style "1920s Tulip Kimono" pattern. The borders are in green cotton chambray. Instead of a frog closure, I just added some petersham ribbon as ties. Here's a close up of the fabric. The point at that corner is the one tricky spot. This was easy to fit, quick to sew, and comfy to wear - definitely one to make again.
