I’ve seen the kimono (cardigan) all over the internet and love the look coupled with the lightweight feel especially for hot summer days. So I decided to make one for myself. It came out perfectly. It took 30 minutes to make and cost only $2. That’s pretty darn good compared to the prices online of $50 or $60. See the pics below and step by step instructions. Make one of your own. Enjoy!
- Fold your material in half length-wise with the hard edge/fringe of material at the bottom and folded edge at the top.
- Measure and cut material according to the diagram below. Obviously, you can adjust the measurements to fit your size and desire.
- Fold inside out and sew beneath the arms (6″ pieces) and along the sides (16-18″ pieces).
- Fold, iron and sew front opening all the way around the neck and back down.
