I know I just posted a DIY off the shoulder top a couple weeks ago but I just can’t get enough of this style of top and how good they look on any body type. Not to mention, how easy they are to make too! This one is a little different than my last tutorial; it’s made in a stretchy/knit fabric and doesn’t have a a contrasting trim. That means you can make this version in a bunch of different colors or prints and they’ll all look amazing and different. Ready to get started?
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’d know that I seriously love kimonos. They’re so easy to toss on as a coverup or pair them with a crop top and denim shorts and you’ve got a super cute yet comfy outfit. It’s the perfect piece for spring, summer, and the beginning of fall. Depending on the fabric, kimonos could be all-out bohemian or more on the street style side. They’re just a wardrobe staple everyone should have at least one of.
Today I’ll be showing you all how to make your own from scratch! You’ll be cutting the sleeves separately and then sewing them in, opposed to just sewing the sides of a rectangular piece of fabric (ie “DIY Kimono From a Scarf”), but I find that this way makes a more flattering and less boxy kimono that flows better. It’s super easy and while it does involve sewing, you could easily finish this project in an afternoon. Plus it’ll look totally store bought!
This tutorial is revised version of THIS DIY I posted last year. I rewrote the instructions and took new photos so you guys could follow along better :) Hope you enjoy!
