I had more fun sewing clothes for Betsy McCall last night. This time Betsy gets a Kimono!
I actually spent quite a bit of time looking at my own vintage kimono to understand the construction, then simplified it a little. Betsy is only 8"! I lined the sleeves , and made the obi out of organza.
I went all out this time and even made her shoes with cork and ribbon!
The final touch was the beaded millinery velvet flower.
I love the outfit so much that I started collecting the objects that will become part of a diorama!
