Can I let you in on a little secret?
I make clothes. Yes, yes i do. Well I try to anyway.
But shh, don’t tell a soul this is just between me and you ok?
So way back when, my dad used to help my grandmother who was a seamstress with her work almost all his life. From that he was able to learn a tremendous amount of sewing skills of which he passed on to me.
For the longest time I’d only been able to do alterations. As I am only 1.59m TALL (which i inherited from my mother), most of my (our) pants etc are usually way too long and therefore need altering so that’s what I’d do.
Recently I started cultivating my skills a little bit and decided to make a couple of items that I have always wanted but could not exactly find the right one.
One of these items is a chiffon kimono.
kimonokɪˈməʊnəʊ/noun– a long, loose traditional Japanese robe with wide sleeves, usually tied with a sash.
