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.

STEP ONE: 

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”.

STEP TWO:

Measure 9” down from the top of the fabric and place a pin. Do the same to the other side.

STEP THREE: 

Now pin from the 9” point down, do it on both sides.

STEP FOUR:

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.

    Sewing was one of my favorite hobbies when I was younger . This looks so easy and fashionable 🙂 Kimonos always add a little flair to any outfit.

    I wish I knew how to stitch and actually handle thread and needles! But your kimono is beautiful.
