Totally blown away by this one from Messy Essy Makes. That quilt pieced cube section is a thing of beauty and works perfectly with the panelling of the dress pattern.

Can’t go far wrong with a denim kimono IMHO! Being made from rectangles of fabric makes a kimono a perfect solution to a jeans refashion.

Susan’s jacket is deceptive. It looks so simple and classic, but there’s alot of though and detail gone into it when you take a closer look.
