P4P Summer Kimono with Elephants!

Last Summer I bought a bunch of Patterns For Pirates patterns including the (at that time) brand new Summer Kimono.  Fast forward 8 months later and I've finally made my first wearable item from that group of patterns.

I made the straight hem length, but I copied the curve of the curved hem version to the longer length.  I'm so glad I did, because that shorter length wouldn't have been good on me, I don't think.  And I really love how flattering the curved hem is.  I'm thinking the next one I make might be even a little longer.

The pattern was simple to make and it's just so lovely.  I foresee a few more of these in my future.

The fabric was from my January Knitfix from Girl Charlee.  It was listed as Blue Elephant Ethnic Rows Jersey Rayon Spandex Knit.  It has a beautiful drape and I love the color.
