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.
Very easy to use, was very pleased with the outcome.
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!
Super cute. Granddaughters love the outfit
