Kimono Inspired robe made from imported wool and silk from Japan

Welcoming Spring!

My spring creations are coming into full form. My main project d’obsession has been a kimono-inspired robe made from silk, wool and my usual dependable Guuterman thread. I love the feel of this robe, (I swear) it came to me in a daydream when I first imagined it.

When it comes to my designs I always like to think about them in depth. Usually they come to me while looking at something beautiful- muses. Or, while gazing out of a window at a gorgeous day.

***Update***

I completed the robe- but, as I often do, I gave it away as a gift.

My Great Grandmother recently turned 90 years old and we had a large party for her, organized by my Mom.

I thought that the robe would be a nice gift- as it is from the heart, the materials were all imported, and it looks like something she would love to wear.

Here are a few shots of the staged robe:
