Girl’s Pom Pom Kimono

Girl’s Pom Pom Kimono

As I have been out and about recently, I have seen cute kimono’s everywhere, even in the girls sections. So I asked E if she would like one, and she gave me a resounding “yes!” We looked through my fabric bins and she really liked this fabric. I happened to have some coral pom pom trim that was a perfect match.  She was so excited for me to make this.

The fabric is this gorgeous rayon by Anna Maria Horner.  Any voile, chiffon, rayon or other flowy fabric will work great for this kimono.

We love the pom poms but a tassel trim would be cute too.  Perfect for the summer!

The best thing about it is it can be made in about an hour.  A great beginner project- all straight lines!

Tutorial

Materials: 1 – 1 1/2 yards flowy fabric plus about 2 yards trim

T1

 

  • Measure child from middle of the back of her neck to her elbow (or a piece of her clothing)
  • Take this measurement, double it, and add 2″. This will be the width of your rectangles.
  • Decide how long you want the kimono to be and add 2″.  This will be the length of your rectangles.
  • Cut out your two rectangles.
  • Find the center of one of your rectangles.  From the center measure 3″ to each side.  Cut your rectangles as shown.
  • If you are making this for a really little girl you might want to do 2.5″ from each side.

T2

 

  • Hem the top of the rectangles as shown.  Fold over 1/2 “, press, and then fold down 1/2” again.  Stitch in place.

T3

  • Hem the sides of your rectangles the same way as the previous step.

T4

 

  • With right sides together, place the rectangles together as shown.  Stitch across the top of the rectangles with a 1/4″ seam allowance.  These are your shoulder seams.
  • Measure down from the shoulder seam 7″ or so.  (For a very small girl, maybe measure down 5-6″) Stitch the side seams from that measurement down to the hemline.  Backstitch at the top of your seam.

T5

 

  • Hem the kimono.
  • Add your trim.
  • Done!

Happy Sewing!
