Asian-inspired shirt and dress with removable obi/sash.
Chic and sophisticated with an Asian-flair, the women’s version of our popular Kyoko pattern will soon become a favorite in your wardrobe. It features a cross-over bodice with three sleeve length options and a flirty A-line attached skirt in three lengths. Kyoko Misses’ has a loose-fitting style so there’s no need for buttons, zippers or snaps. A sweet obi-style sash pulls everything together and finishes the look. For a “Just Like Me” look, check out our girls’ Kyoko (2T - 7) and Kyoko Tweens’ (8 - 14) patterns (sold separately).
