Re: KIMONOS- What do you think of this look?

Not a style that's flattering on me. I need a more defined shoulder.

The belting is a definite Improvement on the kimono style blouses but in general it's a little drapey for my taste

@lolakimono@birdmama,@I taught clothing as well as tailoring.  There is a kimono that is a garmet and a kimono sleeve.

 

Image result for styles of sleeves

 

@MziMa, There are different tupes of kiminos.  The style would have to be identified before the sleeve style would be identified.

Love the jeans!  The top is a bit too short for me, but I love the top!  She looks great!

Re: KIMONOS- What do you think of this look?

I like the nay kimono top with the faded jeans and think just about anyone could pull off that look. I bought 2 kimonos from Evine from the Indigo Thread line and I like them, but would not wear them out of the house. basically they are relegated to lounge ware, I feel they are too costuming looking.
