Top Kimono Sewing Patterns – A Roundup

Here’s our top kimono sewing patterns.

Springtime is kimono time, friends! Seriously, there is no better layering piece for this transitional season (except maybe my other favorite: cardigans!).

Kimonos provide coverage while also being feminine and stylish, they’re perfect for all the slippery fabrics in your stash you’ve been avoiding, they’re an easy way to wear tanks and camis off-season and they’re fairly easy to sew and fit, even if you new to garments.

Kochi Kimono by Papercut Patterns
The Kochi is a fan favorite and looks great in every fabric! Bonus, there are multiple design options to customize your look. The modern cropped length keeps the kimono shape manageable, so you won’t get swallowed by fabric. This might be my favorite, in terms of blending traditional and modern.

Slightly oversized, this kimono-style blouse includes buttons for a more secure closure option – but you could easily leave them off or use a single button instead. The fuller sleeve and split hem offer upscale design details, for coverage and style.

Combine a traditional kimono shape with lace for a chic summer layer that pairs with jeans or trousers for a formal look, complete with satin trim. I’m thinking wedding kimono.

For a bit more coverage in the form of a nice lightweight jacket option, this classic kimono jacket is a great pick. Sewn up in a slightly more stable fabric, this design offers a unique balance of comfort and flow. (That’s it, I’m making one!)

For a different look more akin to a classic dolman, the Venus Kimono offers a curvy take on the classic kimono shape. With cut-on sleeves and simple shoulder darts, this design is a bit more cocoony, perfect for beach days.

Check out these sleeves!!! If you need a statement kimono in your life, you should check out the Asaka. It’s got the length and lines of a traditional robe (and we’re totally okay with that!), but the split sleeves make for a swooshy layer that’s high on drama.
