I've been making more of my 1930's style Kimono Cocoon Wraps - I never know quite what to call them but they are rather lovely as a throw it on, instant touch of glamour.
I've kept one in this mauve / grey colour and wear it all the time.
|Dark Blue Florentine Devore |
|Lt Blue Florentine Devore|
|Mauve with Black printed Devore|
|Lovely Rich Ruby Red|
|Plain Velvet in a Smoky Brown / Grey colour|
And - because I've been asked so many times - I've made some very Bridal ones too. One in ivory lace -
The other in lovely soft rayon / silk velvet ... most of these Kimono Wraps have beads strategically placed for their weight (as did the original vintage 1930's wrap that I have copied). I put a fall (or 3) of beads on the centre back point and groups of beads on the front corners. Here are the pearls I sewed on the bridal velvet Kimono - it is a lovely buttery soft velvet.
