The theme of kimonos

I thought that following a kimono theme might be interesting and I found this excellent online pattern and tutorial for kimono-style clothes for children:

I made this outfit for my little Mia from cottons found in the quilting section of my fabric store. Cute!

Then I purchased some gorgeous Japanese cottons from an Etsy seller and made a few other sets which can be found now in my Etsy store:
