Happy Father's Day & Kimono Love

Hoping All Have A Beautiful Father's Day
also 

 and Especially to my Love




We celebrated Father's Day in Atlantic City yesterday and enjoyed ourselves immensely. 


 Paid homage to several casinos.


Leisurely walked the infamous boardwalk


Took a brief detour from the boardwalk and checked out the Korean War Memorial


Couldn't resist making a pit stop in front of Ripley's Believe or Not Museum



Talk about a BEAUTIFUL day... the weather was perfect as we strolled along the boardwalk hand in hand... people watching, buying souvenirs and celebrating Father's Day.




Noticeable is another make of New Look 6126.... Kimono Love




  I am in Kimono love... this pattern is super easy and was perfect. 



For this version, I used a black/white silky/poly print from Flatbush Fabrics.  For the first one I cut a medium, but this time went down a size, reduced the space between the rows of elastic and used only 2 sew-on snaps.


Did I say I was in Kimono Love.... so you know there will be several more of these.  


This garment is the  perfect alternative to cardigans/blazers for the summer. It has that V-factor... versatile, looks great worn with jeans, slacks, even shorts and really looks cute with a skirt or over a dress.

Thank you for the lovely compliments. We had a great day and Atlantic City has definitely improved since I'd been there last...10 years ago.

Looks like you and hubby had an amazing day with great weather, great photos and I love the top. Looks so breezy!

I'm sure that Kimono pattern will be tattered by the time it gets all of the loving squeezed out of it. LOL. That type of pattern could work for all figure types and looks a breeze to whip up. BTW. Was up near your way this past week on vacay. Visited Manhattan but didn't get to any fabric stores. I think they may have been hidden to only the REAL sewingnistas (not a real word but I take license for it). :)
