DIY | 1 hour Kimono Cardigan

Picture4Picture1 Picture2

Kimonos are EVERYWHERE.

I just went shopping yesterday at Ion to celebrate the end of my exams (FINALLY), and every major fashion outlet  I visited all sold kimonos! These kimono cardigans were available in all sorts of prints – from tropical palm trees to pastel florals to even boho loooking feathers!

I simply love the kimono cardigan’s loose and flowy shape, and how it’s just so effortless-looking. I was soooo tempted to purchase the cute pastel one from H&M for $39.90, but managed to stop myself (with great effort). I mean, how hard could it be to make one myself, right?

Turns out, it was extremely easy!! I spent some time studying the shape of kimonos online,, and also noted the shape of the ones at H&M, and finally thought of a suitable pattern for it. Actually now that I think about it, there wasn’t even much of a pattern! I basically drew on the chiffon fabric itself and cut it out! 🙂

I spent only 1 hour sewing together this pretty kimono, so I guess I’ll rate it a 2/10 in terms of difficulty! 🙂
