1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Kimono Cardigan *with tutorial* on: April 28, 2014 05:03:52 AM
Hi guys!!!  I'm very excited today since I finally get out off bed and dragged myself to the fabric store..  So I managed to make a studded kimono cardigan, and it took like around 3 hours from figuring out the pattern until putting in the studs..

And I have a tutorial for you guys!!!


A kimono cardigan structure is very easy to understand where I already transelate it into the simplest diagram below;

ww= wrist to wrist

nb = neck to bottom (length)

SO, here's the measurements I used for this project..  You guys can use your own measurements but if your are lazy enough, feel free to use mine (fits from XS-L)

For the pattern, only the back part that has to be cut on fold..The front part just cut one for each sides.

I've used a single pattern for the from and back part of the kimono..  The triangle labelled as ''a'' only to be cut when you are doing the front part..

p/s: squiggly part is the seam allowance

Here I show you guys what the fabric should look like after cutting with the pattern..

The picture above shows some colored lines that I will explain next;


1) Green lines = before sewing the pieces together, do finishing stitches along the green lines.

2) Red lines = sew them together first, once you're done sew the (previously green) lines together.

3) Blue line = do finishing seam stitches along the line.

AAANNDDD YOU'RE DONE!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

If you find this tutorial is a bit complicated, feel free to leave some questions for me.. 

Thanks for reading and have a nice day guys  Cool Cheesy

Beautiful silky top. I may well have a try at it: it fulfils my criteria of being really easy to iron! Wink

Yeah i love the material so much when im wearing it since it's cool and breezy, but when it comes to sewing it was the hardest thing you have to deal with..i nearly cried because it kept sinking down (soft, stretchy and light fabric is a nightmare)..i assumed maybe, you just use the serger instead of the common sewing machine so that the fabric can be 'locked' directly without any wuzzy threads sticking out of the fabric _____ (wisest words i can give)

but anyways, good luck to try on this pattern dear  Grin Grin Grin

The pattern of this outfit was actually downloaded from burdastyle for guideline, I constructed the pattern myself because I need to do some alterations to the measurement etc.

But anyways here's the link..


Sorry no tutorial this time because I'm actually still learning on making this outfit...

So finally this is how it looks like, I made it a bit shorter and using 4 panels (2 front, 2 back) to make it more fun and flowy..

Just to show you guys the original image from burdastyle

Dress making process...

Got my chance to wear to class today..  Joyful me despite the cat face to cover up my puffy eyes, crying for whole 2 hours during my movie time..

Thanks for reading...  If you guys want me to do a tutorial on this, do let me know  Grin Grin Grin

Have a nice day!

Great job on the skirts. I like that you did two different lengths. And thanks for sharing how you made them.

hi thanks for the compliment..btw the long maxi skirt was actually like a yard skirt (not sure what people call it).. i bought 2 metres of fabric, fold in half and sew at the sides..it has the drawstring waist..  Grin

Here's the tutorial drawings.. Wink

So when you open up the fabric, it turns into a circle skirt.  Just sew the seams, add a waistband or zipper and you're good to go!  Grin Grin Grin

And my outcomes.

Thanks for looking and feel free to ask me if you guys need any tips etc.

Have a nice day!

Hi guys, before I start I'm not sure whether this entry is in the right forum.  If I posted in the wrong forum I truly apologize and please suggest me the best place for this topic.  Thank you  Smiley

Since my university just started with the holidays, I've spent my 2nd days at home doing diy stuff since I've wanted to glitterfy, diamonize, embellish and studding my phone case so bad!!  Also why not with a clear case of nintendo 3dsxl also right?

so here's my results:

became a member of this site because of your tutorial. i will be making this for my girlfriend over the next few days. just got the material yesterday and going to ask my mom for help with the sewing part. this is awesome and i know my girl will love it. i'll post pictures of mine when it's done. i found the biggest scarf i could, actually what i picked up was called a chiffon, it will most likely be about normal vest length but should work out nonetheless. thanks for tutorial!!!!

omg really?Thank you  Grin I'm so honored when you mentioned that.  Grin Yeah I hope your gf will love it and plis plis post the pics here!!  Good luck in making the vest!!
