Description

Kimono Robe Krazy
I’ve loved Kimono’s since I discovered them in high school when I discovered the world of Geisha’s.
I made a three kimono’s as a robe so I could have a two layer kimono robe where I could change the bottom layer.
I used Simplicity’s costume pattern 4080.
I wasn’t entirely happy with the first kimono (with orange collar) the stitching gathered a bit with the sheer fabric, esp. on the centre back seam which I later eliminated on the other two kimono’s.
It was also fiddly but enjoyable matching up the pattern so that it flowed like proper kimono’s do.
I decided to hand finish as much as I could on the last two I made and am happy with the results:-D
Will defiantly try to make the next kimono entirely by hand! :-D

Material Notes

Orange Kimono – Cotton Sari Fabric
Black Kimono – Silk Crepe de Chine

      Thank you :-D I’ll have to experiment to get rid of the gathering or stick to no back seam. But it was fun to make and is great to wear. Will definitely be making more!!! But give it a go, your work is absolutely amazing!!! I’m very impressed!!!
