5 Kimono Jacket tutorials

Updated on by Sarina

Kimono Jacket is a must-have versatile garment that should be in every girl’s wardrobe. Please do not confuse these trendy jackets with the traditional Japanese Kimonos. They are nothing like them.

Kimono Jackets are mostly sheer, long, cardigan-style jackets that you can wear as an outer garment. Sew them in knits or sheers or any beautiful patterned fabric you love and wear them with absolutely everything

If you have come here, mistakenly, looking for a pattern for making a Kimono (which is nothing like the kimono jacket) you can head over to the post on drafting a pattern and sewing a Kimono. Learn more about Kimono and different types of Kimonos here

Kimono Jackets are trendy throughout the year – You can sew them for summer as a light and airy jacket over your tank top or wear them over a romper on chilly night outs. You can wear it over your bath suit as a cover-up. Transform your boring dresses or t-shirts with a brightly patterned kimono jacket in brilliant color. I have seen black simple dresses transformed to chic with beautiful kimono jackets sewn with a fringed fabric.

Below are some brilliant tutorials to sew kimono jackets. They all have detailed easy instructions and will make you want to sew at least half a dozen in one single sitting.

    1. Hi Farida
      Why is that so? If you click on the links on the page – that will take you to the web pages with the tutorials or is there another problem?

    2. Same here. I wanted to see the lace tutorial, but it takes me to an update. I clicked on the 1 hour kimono tutorial takes me to a different site (which I already checked out) and THAT site has a link to a tutorial that doesn’t work.
