Kimono update....

Hello there
I am still working on the kimono, Have to say this project is one of my all time faves it has been a pleasure to work with... I have really enjoyed every min of it.
It has not only been lovely to work with BUT it has been very educational... Seeing the way it has been put together... it has all been made by hand I can't imagine how long it took to make it originally, I'm only mending it and it's taking a while..... That being said I am taking my time with it as I'm enjoying it so much!
So where am I now
The inside back seam is done....

This is the hem....
I now just have the collar and the inside arm to do then it's ready to be put in the Christmas gift pile. Oh and I have to make a waist tie too... I look forward to choosing the fabric for that!! I would love to make a pattern for this as it it a original, and has been executed with amazing workmanship... Watch this space and I'll let you know...
Let me know if you would like to have the tute written up?!?!?!
Anyways I'm off to enjoy the Autumn sunshine before I pick up the boys.
