This Kimono PDF pattern will give your 18″ doll, like American Girl® Dolls, an Asian flair. Not interested in a Kimono? Turn the pattern into a warm and snuggly bathrobe! Instructions for both options are included. This pattern is very easy to sew and is perfect for a beginning sewer.

Bonus instructions on how to make the belt (Obi) and shoes (Geta) are also included.
