Echino Kimono

After seeing the awesome, simple tutorial on Elle Apparel, I knew I had to make a “kimono.”

Rather than silk, however, I was dying to use the Echino Rhino print.  It’s a 85% cotton/15% linen blend, but I like the way it hangs, especially after a wash.  The design is so awesome, I literally felt the need to drape myself in the fabric.

This has been a great way to add a touch of fashion to my tees and jeans wardrobe.

  1. Hi, saw the Elle apparel kimono and want to make one in a woven. Did you shorten the sleeves on yours, or is that the drape of the fabric? Love the fabric! Such a cool look.
