DIY Kimono

Kimono's are one of the biggest spring/summer trend of the year. I love them and I love how you can find them in every different style possible, from short or long to
plain or colourful. 
With that I thought it would be a fun DIY to make, and I wanted to make it in the easiest way possible. 

What you'll need:

  • 2 Scarves ( These are from H&M the have many colours and patterns. They are about 60x200cm or  24"x 78")
  • Measuring Tape
  • Pins!! 
  • Basic thread and needle
This DIY is super simple and only took me 20 minutes !

STEP ONE: Lay both scarves side-by-side and fold them in half. I left the top layer about 5" from the bottom which adds more flow to the kimono and also leaves the back of the kimono longer then the front. The top layer measured approximately 35" from the bottom seam of the second layer to the folded edge. 

STEP TWO: Pin the seam of the two back pieces together and sew along the edge, either by hand or machine. 

STEP THREE: The length of each arms hole can be measured by preference. I personal don't like the openings to be to wide. From the top folded edge I measured 12" and placed a pin at that mark, then sewed the sides of the kimono together up until the pin, leaving the 12" opening.   


Have fun making your own kimono! See you soon <3
