Sewing: Birthday Kimono

I found this darling fabric on clearance at my local quilt shop and couldn't resist. I love the cherry blossom motif. And I love kimonos--especially in knits on little babies. This is the second kimono set I've made from New Look pattern 6333. After the corduroy set I learned ribbon wasn't the best tie material, though it looks cute, and switched to seam binding here. Still added a few snaps for security.

I made the top shorter so Audrey will have more freedom of movement. I'm thinking of this as an everyday play outfit though I'm saving it for her to wear to her second birthday party, if she doesn't wear something else...the party planning is a bit complicated this year.
