This was made as a Christmas gift for my sister. She really liked the one I had made for myself so I surprised her with her very own. I used a Simplicity costume pattern but changed the belt. It's not really practical to wear as a robe with an obi. I wanted to keep the more traditional look of and obi but simplify it. I designed a double sided belt with a couple layers of interfacing to keep it structured. Because of the contrasting colors the ties show up particularly well if you twist them a bit as you wrap it around. I really love the bright exuberance this project exudes.

What type of fabric did you use?

It was a quilt fabric a found at Joann Fabrics. I'm not sure what the design is called.
