You'll be the envy of all your friends in your new Kimono Wrap. Whether you use it as a beach cover-up in sheer fabrics or as a lightweight cocktail dress sewn in slinky knits, this will be your go-to pattern this Summer. It also works perfectly as a bathrobe sewn in French Terry or as a glamorous night-time robe sewn in sexy silks or satins.
Because our Kimono Wrap pattern is made based on your own body measurements, it will fit all body types. No more worrying about a perfect fit. Our easy-to-follow instructions will guide you step by step through taking your measurements and creating your custom-made garment.
Check out some inspiration images from our wonderful testers:
Crystal Dekker, with That's What SHE Crafted, made a shorter wrap and used 60"-wide satin fabric. We think she looks fabulous in her new Kimono Wrap! Crystal thinks they would make ADORABLE bride/ bridesmaids robes for getting ready on the big day.
Kara Orr of www.leighleecollection.blogspot.com used cotton voile for her Kimono Wrap. It looks so drapey and comfy!
Jenny Fish, at www.sewprettydresses.blogspot.com, used Pip Studio's Lawn 40"-wide fabric for her beautiful Kimono Wrap.
And last but not least, Kristen McVane sewed her Kimono Wrap in a floral rayon. Photographer Roark Nelson, www.roarkphoto.blogspot.com, took these amazing photos of model Summer Wardlaw.
We are in love!
Now, if you don't know about the ROAD TRIP PATTERN CLUB, read on:
The Road Trip Pattern Club is an exciting collaboration between 5 of the top sewing pattern designers in the industry, Betz White, Patty Young, Carla Crim, Liesl Gibson and Carolyn Friedlander. Every three weeks from late May through August, club members will receive an exclusive brand new PDF sewing pattern delivered directly to your inbox.
There are 5 travel inspired patterns that include bags, accessories and women’s clothing, ranging in skill from confident beginner to intermediate. The designs will be a mystery until they are revealed at each road trip “destination” every 3 weeks.
The first pattern was released on Tuesday May 27 (see it here). The Kimono Wrap is the 2nd pattern in the series and will be followed by 3 more patterns revealed every three weeks through August. The one-time membership fee for the club is $35 for all 5 patterns.
