Introducing the Penelope Red Emerald Kimono. It really is a very striking design- it has been made from a border print, and I have placed the dark border panel going down the front to create length and a dramatic look!
Part of the border pieces have been used across the yoke- this helps the shoulders to look wider. The paler pieces of fabric have been used on the sleeves and the back (with darker edges towards the side seams- again creating a very flattering line).
The photos don't really do the print justice- it looks so much more alluring in real life- but they will have to do!
There is actually a seam running down the centre back- but as you can see from this photo, I have matched up the print beautifully!
The inside of every Penelope Red garment is always as neat as the outside. In this design I have used white overlocking to finish off the seam edges.
A great style with jeans, pants or a fitted skirt. The Emerald Kimono is now available for purchase in the Penelope Red etsy store.
