Seam Finishing Techniques: this updated version of the pattern shows how to make the robe using french seam techniques or basic seam finishing techniques. French seams are a couture finishing technique in which you sew each seam twice in order to enclose the seam allowance. This technique works best with thin/lightweight fabrics, such as a silk or light cotton. Basic finishing techniques include pinking, zigzag stitching, or serging,
The most recent pattern update shows how to make the kimono in 1 OR 2 fabrics. The previous pattern only used one fabric. Using 2 fabrics means you will have one main fabric for the body and sleeves and a different fabric for the cuffs, collar and belt.

My mother and I made my first sewing project when I was 5: a drawstring purse out of a beautiful butterfly-print cotton. Years later, I'm still sewing, and I love to share my designs with others. My patterns and tutorials use couture techniques I studied in the fashion design program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I lived for 3 years in Paris, and Atelier Joy designs are inspired by the beautiful Parisian lifestyle. All tutorials include feminine details and couture techniques made easy with step-by-step instructions and photos. Use them to sew beautiful pieces that will last a lifetime.
