Lisa's Kirsten Kimono Tee

May's been busy with Me-Made-May 2014 and gardening so I am a little behind in posting my April completed top.  After washing and drying my fabric, I found it had shrunk from 1 1/2 yards to @1 yard, so the original plans changed to sewing my second Kirsten Kimono Tee, a free download from Maria Denmark.  A review of the pattern, along with both tops I've recently made, can be found at my blog here.   This is a fantastic little top! 
Happy Sewing Everyone!

  2. It's always important to pre-shrink. Case in point here! Very nice top.

  6. Great change of plans, too bad about the massive shrinkage though! I agree that the Kirsten Kimono tee is a nice pattern -- this one looks wonderful on you.

  7. The shrinkage was amazing - I often get 10%, but 30% is a huge amount. I would wash this in cold water in the future - just in case - it's too lovely a top to have a washing disaster.
