Inspired by my love of Japanese culture and ballet-styled cardigans, this sweet little tunic/dress is a deceivingly simple knit.
A seamless garment, knit in the round from the top down. Lengths are included for either tunic or dress.
This westernised version of the kimono has a fake obi, crossover bodice (in the Western style), flared sleeves and a lovely elongated skirt.
For the best fit choose sizing based on chest measurement, not age.
Suitable for any dk/8ply woollen based yarns.
