It really was an easy project, but extremely time consuming (and I was making two at once.) Here are the results: Covers and cover page Circus Monkey The balloons velcro on and the wheel turns to reveal different colors.

Oversized Kimono Wrap Top

I want Bigfoots in Sweden! Anyway, what you will need for this tutorial: A fabric measuring approximately 164 cm long and 150 cm wide. The size dimensions used in this tutorial are made for me, so if your size differ a lot from mine you will probably have to make a few adjustments.

Start out by folding your fabric in half so that you get these measurements: Then cut out two 30×48 cm rectangle shapes on each side. Just a tip: I used the cut out parts for my belt, so don’t throw them away if you want a belt in the same material as the kimono… Oh well.
