Sewing a Suki Kimono - Pattern by Helen's Closet


As a longterm Japan - and everything that has to do with japanese culture - fan you can bet I have a thing for kimonos as well. So of course, when I hear the words 'kimono' and 'sewing pattern' together, a loud alarm inside my head goes off.

No wonder I had to try Helen's Closet Suki Kimono sewing pattern!

When I bought the pattern, I knew exactly, what I was going to make: a black lace kimono of course! I saw one years ago in a store and fell in love with it immediately... but it had fringes. Little Minn inside me cried a little as I went home without that kimono.

Anyways, no project is complete with at least a few minutes searching for inspiration on pinterest. Here's what I found best:



All sooo beautiful, right?! 

Anyways again, I made a straight size M, 'short' version, no pockets, no ties. I should have made the front bands all the way down instead of stopping midways as the pattern says, but that's okay, I still think it looks perfect.

Obviously this is not a homewear-piece. It's quite a statement to wear! But in my opinion it's part of being a sewist to wear the selfmade stuff with more and more confidence.

Are you interested in an outfit post, where I show you how I combine the kimono with my other clothes?
