Kimono / Bathrobe 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

16 reviews   |  

Read Creation's Kimono PDF pattern will give your 18" doll, like American Girl® Dolls, an Asian flair. Not interested in a Kimono?  Turn the pattern into a warm and snuggly bathrobe! Instructions for both options are included. This pattern is very easy to sew and is perfect for a beginning sewer.

Bonus instructions on how to make the belt (Obi) and shoes (Geta) are also included.

Recommended Fabrics:  brocade, silk, cotton, terry, micro fleece or similar fabric


Supplies Needed: 
Supplies needed for the Kimono:
-1 yard of brocade, silk, cotton or similar fabric.

Supplies needed for Bathrobe:
-1 yard of terry, cotton, silk or micro fleece fabric

Supplies needed for the Obi (Belt):
-A strip (4 ½” x 24” cut cross grain) of satin, cotton or similar fabric
-1 ¾” x 13½” piece of felt (used as filler for belt, therefore color is not important)

Supplies needed for the Geta (Shoes):
-2 ¾” x 3 ½” piece of 1/8” or ¼” plywood (I used a rectangle wooden plaque from a hobby store)
-16” of 1/8” - ¼” black ribbon
-4 wooden Skinny Sticks® or other wooden craft sticks (5 ¾” x ¼”)

Wonderful pattern but...

The pattern was easy to use, but I personally find it easier following video patterns to written ones. But despite that I was able to complete the kimono and loved the outcome!!

Kimono / Bathrobe 18" Doll

The directions were not easy to follow. I have purchased several patterns from Pixie Faire and have never struggled with a pattern and instructions like I did with this. Once I finally figured out what to do the kimono did turn out cute.

Japanese Kimono looks authentic!

Made this for a church auction. There could be more information about the underarm and leaving a hole there but maybe it is there and I didn’t read it thoroughly. It makes it so the sleeve doesn’t pull. Also I think the obi looks best tucked in and not just folded over but those are easy fixes and it may be because I don’t really know how it is supposed to look. If you are looking to make a Japanese kimono—this is the pattern!
