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.
