This jacket is an easy sew with two collar options and can be made in either knit or woven fabric making it versatile. There is separate front patterns pieces for knit or woven options. Made in brocade it became very dressy and made in denim it's nicely casual. My next project (maybe) is to attempt a quilted version.
This is my second make from WBM and I am so pleased with how quickly it came together and how comfortable the final jacket is. The top stitched seams give it a really nice finish and the way the pockets are put in looks great. I made mine in French terry and would like to make another one with a woven fabric.
This versatil pattern has been updated with more options and sizes. I love the pockets and the way the sleeves are hemmed. The neck can be finished with a simple collar or a shawl collar. It's a perfect pattern to be used with knit or woven fabric. The instructions are really clear and the photos help a lot.in case your english is not good enought. If you need a Kimono this is your pattern.
I sewed up the shawl collar version. I wanted a warm jacket I could use in Winter so I used a Luxe Fleece fabric, and it is very warm. Love the big pockets to the Kimono Jacket. Well written instructions and illustration, great design.
This is such a classic jacket with great lines and a comfortable fit. I made one from double gauze and it was perfect! I have several more planned and would like to make a cozy one from microfleece for lounging around the house in the chilly winter. Love this pattern!
