A denim kimono-inspired jacket

I made this kimono jacket last year, I think. The whole last year and a half is all a blur in my head, I should make better use of my sewing journal to track these things in the future. It’s a very simple shape, a big square and two square sleeves, slightly tapered at the wrist. A side tie keeps it closed.

I can’t even remember when I bought this denim, it feels like it’s been in my stash forever, and I am happy I have put it to good use.

I wore this a few days ago with a black of linen pants and felt amazing. I looked a bit like a ninja, and felt like a million bucks. Nonsense, I have no idea what a million bucks feels like. I’m sure it’s overrated. It was very comfy and it felt like me. You know that feeling?
