So I finished the kimono and am generally pleased with it. It was my first time doing mattress stitch on garter stitch so I’m pretty happy with how that turned out. I’m not in love with how the seaming went under the arms but as I’ve been reading on the internet, I’m not the only one having problems. I think it looks too Frankensteiny but my sister assures me that no one will notice. Heh. Since it was for a little boy I did opt for the button instead of the ties. That part was easy. 🙂
