Materials List

  • Cutting Mat (24" x 36")
  • Acrylic Ruler (6" x 24")
  • Adjustable Three-Position Rotary Cutter (45 mm)
  • Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Shears (8")
  • 1½  yards 58” wide floral print knit fabric
  • Sewing machine and thread
  • Pins
  • Iron and ironing board

Instructions:

  1. Cut two pieces of fabric measuring 58” x 27” using the Adjustable Three-Position Rotary Cutter and Acrylic Ruler. When working with large pieces of fabric, I often fold the fabric in half to make cutting long pieces more manageable. The rotary cutter is designed to power through multiple layers, giving you clean, straight cuts each time.

  2. To create the back seam of the kimono, lay the two pieces of fabric on your work surface with the wrong sides of the fabric facing each other. Pin down one long side of the two pieces of fabric starting at the top edge and stopping halfway down the side. Sew along the pinned line, leaving the remaining half unsewn. The unsewn half forms the kimono front opening. Trim away the seam allowance to ¼” using the 8” Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Shears.

  3. Fold the fabric back over so that the right sides of the fabric are facing each other. Sew the seam once more, with a ½” seam allowance. This French seam completes the back seam of the kimono.

  4. Open out the fabric so that the back seam you stitched in steps 2 and 3 is facing up, and the kimono's opening edges are on top. Fold the opening edges over and press with an iron. Pin the fold and stitch down, to finish the opening neatly.

  5. Now create the armholes. Place a pin 10” down from the folded edge on both sides of the kimono. Pin all the way down to the bottom edges of the fabric then stitch. Trim any loose threads then turn your kimono to the right sides.

Thank you for the great instructions...I love the fabric used in this tutorial and could see making these as gifts because the size is versatile and could be a great fit for many ladies, and it would go well with jeans, slacks, or a dress! This would be a fun,project for beginners and even for a fun project during a ladies night! I could also see this made from terry cloth or fleece as a bed jacket or for the hospital as a comfy top to feel better! Great idea!
