A Catalogue of Penelope Red Kimonos

My Penelope Red cotton kimonos are still a big seller, years after I first made the pattern up. I created the pattern draping the fabric and creating the pleats on the dummy. It's the perfect adjustable, wear any where, with anything style. And it suits many different women from young to old, with many different body shapes. 

So here is a collection or a design catalogue of most of my handmade cotton kimonos I have created over the years... It's the perfect way to show you how versatile and how different this style can look when in a different print, or styled a certain way.

 

The Pink, Black and Orange Coral Kimono was the first copy of the Kimono style I ever created. I loved it so much that I knew I needed to make more! I kept one for myself and still wear it years later, since it is such a great, versatile style.

I love using vintage trims and braids on my designs. This black polished cotton kimono looks so special because of the vintage trim I used. It is a very unique design, since only three copies of this style were created.

Leanne wears another one of a kind custom order kimono. Leanne wanted an evening version of the kimono, so we chose this vintage bright green silk.
