Oh wow--I love those "aha!" moments when you notice something that you never did before. I am really intrigued to see how your version differs from some of the Simplicity-made ones I've seen; I dare say it's going to be a far more flattering fit. There is something really nice about velvet and kimono sleeves, imho. Very elegant, I guess! ;)

It's going to differ quite a bit from all the repros I've seen, especially since I've never seen a kimono sleeve repro. I think it will suit the velvet quite nicely. Mine isn't silk velvet, like the original, so I'll lose some of the soft drapeyness of the film version but I think it will be okay. One nice thing is there are barely any seams, which with velvet is awesome!
