Picnic T-shirt dress- Maria Denmark Kirsten Kimono Tee

I needed something to wear to my dad’s work picnic at the end of June.  I didn’t have any shorts that still fit.  So with the help of the KC Pinheads sewing group, it was decided that the Maria Denmark Kirsten Kimono tee as a dress would be perfect.

This time, I shortened the length I added to 8 inches to the bottom of the extra-large tee length.  I shortened the neckband to 21.25 inches and used a quarter-inch seam allowance for the neckband.  That may be a little too small because the front neckline is a bit more gathered than I think it is supposed to be.  Otherwise it is fairly similar to the grey/ navy stripe one I made at the end of May for book club.

Here is my trial at taking pictures with the camera’s timer.  They are not as good as the one my dad did above.  But I tried especially since 2 seconds is too short but 10 seconds is too long.

I do have other finished items that are just awaiting for photos to be able to share.
