Kimono Over Here

I'm not so sure about working with a stretch knit fabric. It, well, stretches and makes uneven hems, like on the half-finished kimono pictured above. Just need a little more practice, I guess. To finish, I need to set in the sleeves, make the tie, and top stitch the hems. 

The fabric pattern is mod, which I love on little toddler girls. The finished piece will look adorable with her new sailor jeans. The fabric's weight is nice and airy, perfect for a busy baby running around day care all day. 

Olivia is sleeping peacefully now, taking her morning nap. I'm going to sneak upstairs to work on it a little more.
