How To Sew a Kimono
Hello to all of my beautiful readers!! Hope all has been good since my last post.?
I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a really long time, my internet has been playing up and I haven’t been able to get any internet access for at least 2 weeks. Finally its been fixed and I can start posting up blog posts again. Yay.!! 😊
Today I thought I would do a very simple sewing diy. I absolutely love making these and they are so very easy. You can sew it in about an hour. Perfect for when you want something over the shoulders for a bit more warmth on a summer, autumn night.
So without any further ado let’s get on with the diy..
HOW TO SEW A KIMONO
What you will need for this diy is any fabric of your choice ( I used a cotton knit fabric which has some stretch to it.) tape measure, fabric & cotton scissors, sewing needle, black thread and sewing pins.
Firstly fold your piece of fabric in half ( my piece of fabric folded was 40” by 29”) I cut about 4”off the side so now it is measuring 36” by 29”.
Measure 9” down from the top of the fabric and place a pin. Do the same to the other side.
Now pin from the 9” point down, do it on both sides.
Sew from the 9” point down. Do the same on the other side too. ( I hand sewed my kimono, but you can use a sewing machine or fabric glue.) it’s totally up to you.
Now hem, pin and sew both arm holes.
Hem, pin and sew all the raw edges and then you are finished. Now you can wear your kimono.
This is my finished kimono.! I really hope you guys enjoyed this different blog post. Please let me know in the comments below if you will be making this.?
Hope everyone has an awesome day.! 😊
Until next time
