    SIMPLE KIMONO TUTORIAL

        

    Whether you are wanting to add a thin layer for warmth or a bit more coverage, this easy Kimono is a must have in your wardrobe.

    You will need:

         

    Cut the following pieces:

    • Front (includes sleeves) pieces x 2
    • Back piece x 1
    • Outer Band  x2

    Step One

    Stitch down the shoulder pleats on front panels from “nicks”

    Refer to pattern for length of stitch line.  Complete on both sides.  This needs to be repeated on the back.

        

    Lay pleats facing the sleeve and tack down

    Pleat should look like this:

    Repeat on both sides.

    Roll hem both sleeves

    Lay out front/sleeves like so:

         

    Sew shoulder seams.  Maching pleats on both front and back.

    Sew back panel to both fronts attaching down the side seams

       

    We recommend overlocking shoulder and side seams at this stage.

    Sew the two outer bands together at both ends to create a large circle

       

    press seams open

         

    with right side of band facing up (on wrong side of centre back panel), attach outer band to the back panel.  Matching the Middle seam of the band with the middle of the centre back panel.  The other middle seam of outer band should be at the middle of the bottom of the centre back panel.

    turn the outer band over and top stitch to close it on to the right side of garment.

    Press final garment
