My good friend from college just had her first baby, a girl! I had this beautiful Indian (I think) print skirt I got at the thrift store and I had been holding on to it until I was able to find the right project for it. When I was looking for some material to make Violet a gift I knew that this was it!
Instead of a one piece back, I had to cut it as two pieces, but I think it turned out really well.
Of course, no kimono is complete without little shoes!
Welcome to the world, little Violet!!
