DIY Kimono Dress/Jacket From Scratch | Free Pattern

I’m surprised that this is my first time doing a DIY Kimono Dress/Jacket, because I have like 3 of these things hanging in my closet. The tutorial for this is basically the same as making a regular kimono. I just tweaked the dimensions a little bit to make it a tad wider than normal, so that I can have a more gathered effect when I tie it into a wrap dress.

So, this tutorial is beginner friendly and is quick and easy to sew. You’re basically going to be joining rectangles together.


  • 1.5m fabric (2 yards)
  • Matching thread
  • Ruler/dressmaker’s measuring tape
  • Dressmaker’s pins
  • Chalk or pencil
  • An iron and ironing board
