I wanted to do something that was ‘double-breasted’ without actually being so. Of course, I was also doing the Kimono thing.
This is the result.
1 Pink/Salmon Art-Silk Sari – Rayon of a very nice quality (6 yards)
6 yards of poly/cotton blend for the lining
Time: About 8 hours
Zari borders make for a nice gold accent
Long Belt to make a contrasting obi bow
Sleeves attached with opening under the arm, so you don’t have to wear the sleeve and can move it out of the way when needed
Pleated on the shoulders for extra room
One size really does fit most
