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.

Recommended Fabrics: brocade, silk, cotton, terry, micro fleece or similar fabric

Supplies needed for the Kimono:
• 1 yard of brocade, silk, cotton or similar fabric or depending on your layout you might get by with 1/3 yard

Supplies needed for the Obi (Belt):
• A strip (4 ½” x 24″ cut cross grain) of satin, cotton or similar fabric
