Kimonos are so versatile. They can be worn during every season. Kimonos dress up the plainest of outfits. They're also a great transitional accessory.
Spring: Throw on one when the air is still a little crisp.
Summer: On hot days, slip on a sheer kimono.
Autumn: Start adding layers with a textured kimono.
Winter: Throw on a knit kimono to stay cozy.
I lucked up on this sheer fabric at Unique and knew it would make a great kimono.
This has to be the easiest sewing project ever. I held it up to me
to see how long I want it to fall and laid it out and cut.
Next, while still folded in half, I measured down 22 1/2 inches and pinned it for the arm holes.
Then, simply cut straight down the middle of one side. (Make sure you don't cut both sides.)
Before sewing the front opening, I used tape instead of pins.
Epic Fail: The tape was so hard to get off and made the sheer unravel.
(I fixed it with a zigzag stitch)
I used a zigzag stitch to sew the seams under the arm holes.
(a regular stitch will rip and come undone)
