The kimono is made of a bright pink and purple polyester cotton. As it is going to be a dressing gown it will be easy to care for. I used purple ribbons for the ties and made a matching purple obi. The finished look was very pleasing and Jenny was delighted with her kimono.
Below you can see the kimono laid out with the purple obi loosely tied around the waist. Notice the split sleeves. Once I worked out what to do (no thanks to the pattern instructions), they were not too difficult. An added bonus is that everything was done on the machine.
