Easy to follow,great pattern!
Used brocade satin with smallish designs to make Kimono. Easy pattern and directions. First one came out beautiful so I made another. Great excuse to shop for fancy fabrics! PROBLEM: pattern calls for one yard but the pattern pieces only take up one-third yard of 45inch wide fabric. Used the left over fabric to make the Chinese style Cheongsam, pattern also available at Pixiefaire.
Loved this pattern! It was 'sew' easy. Will make it again!
For all kimono, men or women, left goes over right. Right over left is reserved for the dead, when they are dressed for a funeral...
