Kyoko Sew-Along // Day 5

Friday, May 05, 2017

The last piece to the Kyoko pattern is the Obi. Note: All seam allowances are 1/2" unless noted otherwise.

Cut your one yard length of ribbon in half creating two 18" long pieces. Place the ribbon pieces on top of one obi piece right sides together, lining up the ribbon ends with the short ends of the obi and centering top to bottom. Baste in place 1/4" from the edge. You may want to pin the ribbon tails in the center of the obi, so they do not get caught in the seams.

Lay the other obi piece on top of the one with the ribbon pieces right sides together with the ribbon sandwiched in between. Stitch all the way around the obi leaving a 2" wide opening for turning.

Stitch over the narrow ends again to secure the ribbon ties. Trim your seam allowances and clip the corners.

Turn the obi right sides out. Use a turning tool or chop stick to poke out the corners. Press well and topstitch 1/8" from the edge all around the obi closing the opening in the process. Finish or trim the ends of the ribbon as needed.

The obi ties around the waist of the dress criss-crossing in the back. Secure with a pretty bow! All done!!

Be sure to add photos of your completed Kyoko pattern to our Facebook Group before Monday, May 8th to be entered to win a prize. You can share photos on Facebook and Instagram with hashtag #kyokosewalong. We will post the winner next week!
