Kimono Love…

If you haven’t noticed, kimonos seem to be everywhere. I have seen more than a few and was really inspired to make my own.




I used Simplicity pattern 1318 To make mine.


Simplicity 1318

I completely understand why people love them. They are easy to wear either around the house or out running errands. This pattern is also easy to make. I used a polyester that’s lightweight and has nice movement. It was also an experiment for me since I rarely use silky or sheer fabrics. It’s something I need to do more of. I could use the practice!


This pattern could be lengthened if you wanted to make something duster length like the photo above (both of those are from Target, by the way). And there are some variations on the pattern itself in terms of length and the front band style. This is definitely a pattern I can see myself making again.
