Kimono / Bathrobe 18" Doll Clothes

6   |  

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)

Easy to follow,great pattern!

Beautiful Kimono

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!

Kimono customs

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...
