Sew Fun: Robes & Kimonos!Saturday, October 24, 2015
Paisley - Sheer fabric
Purple Long Sleeve - Cotton and Poly blend
Polka Dots - Silk
- 1.5 yards of each of the fabric (if you wanna just make a Kimono you can get away with using just 1 yard, but I wanted to be safe than sorry) - Prices Varied
- Rotary Cutter or Scissors
- Measuring Tape
- Cutting Board
- Sewing Machine
- Matching Thread
Step 3 (box 3): I got the back piece and folded it in half (long ways) and cut a curve on the corners for the neck.
Step 6: Sew the opening edges of the arm pieces together where you folded. Slip the sleeve in the opening and then pin & sew around the edges, do the same for the other side. I had already hemmed the edges of the sleeves prior to finishing this part.
Step 7: Finish the strap by folding it in half (long ways) and do a straight stitch. Tada! All done, you have your self a robe or a kimono! Now I just need to figure out how to add pockets! Ha!
Total Cost for all three: ~ $24.00 (vs. $24 for one from Target).
