Simplicity 8172 is kimono jacket with a full flounce. This jacket can be made in an evening. Our sample is View D and our Fashion Duo includes the Jersey Knit to create View D or C. The only difference between View D and View C is the added contrasting sleeve trim.
This version is made using our Jersey Knit which is 72" wide. We selected the Phoenix in Twilight Blue as the Kimono top and a coordinating Hand Dyed Jersey Knit in the shade of Twilight Blue. The front facing is finished with a simple purchased or made 1/2" single fold bias. So... you sew/serge the shoulder seams, side seams, attach the flounce, finish the facing with the bias strips and hem the flounce and sleeve openings.
