Printable digital download PDF tutorial for kimono-style robe including cutting layout, sewing instructions, and over 40 instructional photos. All but one of the pattern pieces are rectangular, so the tutorial includes a cutting layout with dimensions instead of individual pattern pieces to print out. There is only one pattern piece to print out (one letter size page), since there is only one piece with a curved line. Intermediate sewing skill level suggested.
Style is one size. Fits Women's US sizes 0-14. Includes option to make long (44" from shoulder to hem) or short (33" from shoulder to hem) version.
Please see the photos for yardage chart.
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 latest pattern update includes instructions for making the kimono in 1 OR 2 fabrics. The previous pattern only showed 1 fabric. Using 2 fabrics means you will have one fabric for the body and sleeves, and a different fabric for the cuff, 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.
