3 Hour Kimono Pattern

This 3 Hour Kimono Pattern is a great project to finish on a lazy Sunday or a free afternoon. The adorable final project makes an amazing light summer jacket. It is a great piece to wear when you want to sport a tank top for the day but want the option to keep covered.

The fresh and flowy bohemian look it provides is ultra-hip and comfy. It's completely on-trend with the latest fashion, so you'll be fashionable without that hefty price tag. But, be warned, your friends will be begging you to make them one.

Very pretty and a great idea as a light cover up for summer, especially evenings when it may be cooler. I'm going to make mine longer and use a fabric that drapes beautifully. I love soft clothes that hang nicely and kimonos are always lovely to wear.

I think this was a good tutorial because some people are on a fixed income and cannot afford to buy a pattern and this explains how they can take one of their old kimonos or a loose shirt to make one. I can even see making one out of sheer fabric for a beach coverup and it looks simple enough and fast to make.

Why not just use a kimono pattern and save lots of time? Most major pattern companies make a similar pattern.........

Definitely a spring must-have. Sign up for our free newsletter to see this featured next week along with other wardrobe winners!

By doing it the way shown here you are Copying the same garment over again! I think you meant to say to use the deconstructed shirt as a pattern for the new Kimono and make it out of other fabric. The way you are explaining it here makes it look like you are putting the old shirt back together again. Better yet. do not deconstruct the original. You can copy the pattern without deconstructing a shirt. Check the sites that show you how to make a pattern from an existing garment so you can copy it!!

sorry but I don't see the point in this tutorial. Any garment can be deconstructed and the pieces used as a pattern for an identical garment.

Not very helpful. Start by deconstructing a kimono!? Also, photos not very clear.

the link for the pattern does not work
