Dear Stella Fabric Kimono Or Jacket

I found the cutest pattern to sew a kimono/jacket using the beautiful flannel,
Winter Cabin Artic Fox, by Dear Stella. It's such soft flannel!
I'm sharing it over on the Therm O Web blog today...check it out.

I love the colors and designs in this line of fabric. These are the three I used in the jacket:

The pattern I used is Simplicity #8172...easy and quick to make.

ThermOWeb Stitch n Sew Pattern Material is great for tracing the pattern and being
able to use it again and again. I will definitely be making another one of these!

Heat n Bond Soft Stretch Lite made hemming it a breeze and kept it soft, too.
The Oliso Purple Iron makes ironing fun...I love it!

Aurifil Thread – These 50wt colors were a great match to the Dear Stella flannel: 
#5002, #2910, #2140, and of course, white.
