kcwc day 3: baby kimono

 For kcwc day 3, I sewed up a simple baby kimono using a free pattern from the blog, Habitual.


Very cute, although the 0-6 month size is no match for my sumo baby - she is almost overflowing the little top already.


No worries, I'll just make another in the next size up.  Definitely in a more feminine print.  I have a yard of Amy Butler's Lotus Morning Glory that would be perfect for this project (of course I remembered it after the fact).

This is a great pattern, because it can be easily modified - I can see it in long sleeves, sleeveless, as a dress, lined for cozy fall jacket ... endless possibilities.  And how cute would it be in a knit?

You are rocking the sewing projects this week! I've been sewing every night, but don't have a finished product to show for my efforts yet- haha! I love it that you've been actually finishing a clothing item a day. Wow!
And this top is too darn cute...
Lovely all around!

awww, your kimono came out so cute!
I've tried this pattern twice and it never comes our as cute as I want, maybe this time around done in cloud print and stars it will be adorable like yours.

What a cutie! The top looks great. I'm also really liking your background. Is it a quilt? Did you make it?

Adorable - I love the fabric. I'm so glad you liked the pattern. By writing the pattern the way I did, my hope was to inspire all kinds of modifications, just as you listed. Love it!:)

So precious... I have that pattern to and have not tried it yet. Super easy? Or kinda time consuming?
Great fabric

I made these Habitual kimonos for the girls and love them! I've also used the same Habitual pattern and done them in a long version made from a towel as a bathrobe. It's a great all purpose pattern
