I almost caved to the temptation to finish watching season 5 of Alias last night instead of finishing the kimono robe. But I didn’t, so I’ve got a) a finished product and b) two exciting episodes left until I have to say goodbye to Sydney Bristow. Sniff.
I’m afraid that the best place for photos was in our well-lit bathroom, so my lovely new robe is pictured in front of our color-by-technicolor shower curtain.
The final details turned out okay – I tried to sew a blanket corner where the trim along the front and the hem meets, and I should have measured out my angles first. It’s a little funny-looking.
I am very, very pleased with the fabric, however. Does it look even remotely authentic, Tim?
Unfortunately, I can’t say that the robe is a particularly flattering garment – it kinda pokes out funny around the hips. So this is as much as I’m going to show of me in it.
As fun as this was, I think I’m going to take a little break from sewing. My dining room table looks a lot better when it’s not covered with sewing machine, scissors, thread, material, little pile of scraps…and I have some Alias to watch. Can’t wait to find out how it all ends.
