DIY Kimono Duster


Hey loves! Surprise!!! Two things, I got a hair cut (again) and I started making my own clothes. Now for the back story, as for my hair, I recently started working out with a personal trainer and I was constantly finding that my hair was a factor in my workout so I chopped it off and I must say I miss my natural coils but this is for the greater good which is my health. 

As for making my own clothes, I decided to brush the dust off my old sewing machine and try my hand at it again and I must say I am loving it so far because the options are limitless! Right now I am working with patterns but my goal is to be able to free hand and draft my own patterns in the future so that way, I can truly design my own clothing and one day soon, design for you guys too!

On one of my ventures into my local fabric store I came across this bolt of gorgeous royal blue and yellow silk and I lost all sense of practicality and could only think about how gorgeous it was. If I had an ounce of practicality left, I would have realized that sewing with these kind of fabrics is definitely not for the light of  heart or the newbie. It requires a great amount of skill actually hence my uneven seams and hems but I love how it came out regardless lol. I actually made a matching yellow velvet dress specifically for this kimono that I cannot wait to show you guys! So far, I am enjoying this new hobby and learning a lot but in no way am I claiming to be a pro.

I drafted this jacket by hand just because I was feeling very creative and it was pretty simple. I paired i with a basic denim and white bodysuit. I will be wearing this duster everywhere this summer believe me!
