I was given two scarves to turn into a kimono coat by Gabi from a local store (Heaven Wrapped). Pinterest is full of similar kimono coats, many of which are being sold for $200 or more.
The money made from the sale of this garment and others to follow will go to the Broomy Memorial Fund to help support men with depression.
The beauty of this kimono is in the design of the print on the scarf, and the fact that it is so quick to make. The only fiddly bit was matching the design on the back, but how rewarding is that mirrored design? The front is similar
This is the perfect thing for resort wear, evening wear over a simple black outfit, lounging around the house, or even lunch with friends – for the bold.
The scarves are 100% linen, overprinted with the design. I had to secure the fringed edges as they frayed very badly, and then sew the centre seams and the “sleeves”. That was it. My sort of sewing!
In a nutshell: 1970s style kimono coat made from two linen scarves donated by Heaven Wrapped, Claremont. No pattern needed!
