SEW A KIMONO

    1. Fold a 170cm rectangle of fabric in half lengthways matching the two selvedges together. Draw then cut out a 10cm strip from the mid-point of one edge, curving off the line towards the fold. This becomes the back neck, and the remainder, the front opening.

    2. Open out then find the centre of the selvedge edge then measure 20cm in both directions making a small clip with your scissors at these two points. Trim away 5mm of the selvedge edge between the two clips. This area becomes the armholes.

    3. Attach satin bias binding to the armhole sections. Open out one side of the binding and stitch it to the wrong side of the fabric first, then fold it over to the front and top edge stitch in place. Repeat the process for the remaining armhole.

    4. Fold the fabric rectangle in half right sides together. The width and fold in the fabric becomes the shoulders and sleeves. Match the ends together and the bottom of the bound armhole sections. Stitch with a 1.5cm seam allowance curving at the top to the outer edge of the binding. Repeat the process for the remaining side seam.

    5. Turn up and press 1.5cm at the base then another 5cm; pin the hem and then edge stitch in place. Finally, attach bias binding to the front opening and around the neck, turning in the raw edges at both ends.
