This dress pattern is amazing! I have been taking some lessons in sewing and I think this might be a nice project to challenge my skills. I would make the arms Abit longer and wider like traditional kimonos because it's sort of cold here now.

I really like the kimono dress idea for a dress pattern, but since I've never really been very good (or patient!) with the slightly more complicated sewing patterns, I think I will be making one of these in the style of a tied kimono dress, with super lightweight fabric and adding a tie to it to achieve the style, but begin by upcycling an old dress, perhaps something in a halter style that I can just redo the neck, cut a little shorter, and add in the tied sash. Nice idea!
