11.5″ Fashion Doll Kimono

Medium 11.5" fashion doll Kimono

For those of you expecting a ballgowns type pattern this week… nope!  Ballgowns are BIG patterns and take a lot longer than regular patterns. Instead, I decided to usher in spring with kimono, invoking images of cherry blossoms and early spring flowers

…as I was forced to give up precious pattern time to go out and shovel snow after that damn storm this week.  This is the worst time of year: the time of year you’re just so done with winter, and you get occasional warm days and a couple of flowers starting to poke up through all the dead and you start to get your hopes up and then BAM! Blizzard, and more snowstorms yet to come 🙁 

Anyway, Spring is still coming, even if it is not here yet.  So why not get started with some lovely kimono for your dolls?  This pattern fits all the different new Barbie type bodies, and a few different variations so you can make festival-wear yukata and elegant formal furisode kimono too!
