Description
You *could* make a classic rectangular-cut
kimono...or you could make this gorgeous
version, perfect for fluid fabrics like washed
linen, crepe, crepe-de-chine, charmeuse,
panne velvet, chiffon, rayon or viscose.

You
can also use a drape-y knit like bamboo,
linen or rayon knits, silk(y) jersey, even a
fluid but firm lightweight sweater knit.  

Unfitted, open front kimono has a slightly
loose but not baggy fit, and features classic
kimono-style sleeves with a square-cut body.
Front has a waterfall edge at the bottom half;
back
features raglan seams and a shorter back.
Sleeves,
neckline and hems are finished
with deep hem bands.

You may wonder when you’d need a kimono...you can
wear this floaty beauty as a beach or pool cover-up, to
dress up a jeans & T outfit, as a glamorous evening
cover-up, a sleep or lounge robe, or a travel cardigan.
This gorgeous kimono would also make a fabulous gift
for a special birthday, or a baby or bridal shower...

Shopping List

All sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL will need around 3 yards or 275 cm fabric.
If you want to use a contrast fabric for the hem, sleeve & neckbands
you
will *still* need 3 yards/275cm fabric, *PLUS* ½ yard/45cm contrast
fabric;
½ yard/45cm interfacing for the hem, sleeve & neckbands is
optional, if you do
use it, make sure it doesn’t make your hem,
sleeve & neckbands too stiff.

All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.

    I’m looking forward to sewing this pattern before my trip to Okinawa to visit my daughter and her family.

    Fantastic pattern

    I made this as a fun cover up for pajama day at my school. Quick and easy muslin that looked spectacular. The cut and sizing of this kimono are perfect. I have plans for a few light kimonas next spring. I love the waterfall front. This kimono works wherever you might use a cardigan or jacket. I made mine in a woven. Great pattern, quick make and just unusual enough to be unique. Love this one!
