    Thanks Dina! This was so easy to follow! My friend wants us to wear Kimonos to her wedding and I've had a hard time finding a good one in the shops because I want it to be loose and float but I have very broad shoulders, so I'm going the DIY route instead!

    Oh WOW! I fretted that this would not work! But as I sit here typing, I am wearing mine! I love it. I wrote the instructions down, and it turned out so beautifully! Now I want to make another one to wear for dress. You are special to be able to do this without a pattern and your instructions are plain, not difficult. I used a challis in turquoise with butterflies all over. It falls nicely. And every time someone new sees it I get compliments and a "I want one"
