Say “Kon'nichiwa” to this DIY Kimono Dress Tutorial. You’ll love how comfortable this DIY dress is for walking around in the summer time. Modeled after the tradition Japanese kimono, the sewing tutorial is quite simple for a dress. “Kimono” actually means “thing to wear” in Japanese, so you know you’ll want to have a few of these DIY dresses in your wardrobe because they’ll never go out of style. The waist tie will make this dress flattering for any figure because you can cinch it at your natural waistline.

Love the simplicity of this dress. The kimono style should be easy to sew and very comfortable to wear. The instructions are informal with no real pattern to download however the images give clear guided information on how to make the pattern and how to sew the few pieces together. I would make this in a pretty print flowy type of fabric.

Flowy dresses like these just make me feel so carefree. This is the perfect thing to make if you want to hop on the summer boho trend, too!
