Sewing: Corduroy Kimono

I have been wanting to make Audrey a kimono set or two. I was thinking of using Martha Stewart's pattern but chose New Look pattern 6333 to use instead. I found this great corduroy fabric at JoAnn--I just love red and pink together!

I wanted to use pink satin ribbon as the seam binding and ties, instead of actual seam binding, because I thought it looked cute, but it has some practical limitations--doesn't really stay tied. Thank goodness for snaps!
I made one of these sets for my niece, Kate too. I think it will be fun as a dress with tights or with the pants underneath.
