This was a quick and cheap sew! Fabricland had half price on the clearance section a month or so ago and I picked up some polyester fabrics for about $1.50/m. I like the idea of a darker print but lightweight garment to transition to fall but work if the weather is still warm – which is pretty typical of Toronto weather. This stretch poly has a hammered texture and was quite beefy & easy to sew. Perfect for a kimono jacket. Sewed it straight out of the envelope in a med/large, view B.
The only glitch was when I caught the back in my serger and sliced up a shoulder. But it was a clean slit & with a little fusible web and a scrap I have been able to seamlessly mend it.
It’s a little shiny, but I like the print! Worn here with Jalie Éléonore Pull-On Jeans & a relax fit t-shirt from Old Navy.
