Sewing the Kyoto kimono jacket and robe – Tutorials

Kyoto Kimono Sewing Pattern

Sewing the Kyoto Kimono

Starting from next week, I’ll be posting a few tutorials on sewing the kyoto kimono. So, if you haven’t grabbed the pattern, here’s your chance now! I’ve also uploaded a new version of the pattern that you can get printed at the printer’s if you’d prefer to do that instead of printing it at home!

I’ll be posting about:

  • Making up both the short and long versions of the Kyoto kimono
  • How to sew beautiful French Seams
  • Sewing the Collar and Sleeve Bands to the kimono
  • Making up the belt and belt loops
  • And I’ll be showing you how you can use lace to make your kimono ultra glamorous….

Here are a few shots of the short kimono in action with some skinny jeans and heels… My current favourite combination 🙂
