I've been obsessing over loose-fitting, oversized shirts and kimonos lately -I definitely think it has something to do with not having much time in the morning; can't go wrong teaming a shirt or kimono with any plain outfit.
The above pics. are from my womenswear hand-in that I completed this morning, and is also a big reason why I've had to live off 5 hours of sleep each night (early wakers, don't tell me that's nothing -I loveee my sleep and my bed!) This morning was the worst, I got everything except for two sketches for our catalogue draft completed, but my brain felt like it was done, fed up, so I decided to close my eyes, for 40 mins at 7am this morning. I swear no matter how organised you are in this class (and apparently the industry), the last night will always keep you up, because you can just keep going and keep perfecting little things -I'm going to have to learn to give that up and visit my pillow more often though; I honestly feel like I'm getting to old for this kind of thing, it was much easier when I was 18.
The kimono is made from linen, with a foiled cotton centre front and centre back layer detail. There's pockets with a print detail on the inside, buttons and fastening are all gold tone, and you can either wear it with the sleeves closed (i.e. no shoulders being revealed!) or open and loose like in the front pic. This was a rush pic. for my hand in today, so will have it properly pressed and see if I can get some better pics. to post another time. For everyone else who I saw working on their projects at uni over the week-end, wish you luck and a lovely catch-up day of sleep after it's all done.
