fabric (preferably one that does not fray), I used 1 yard
ruler or tape measure
fabric chalk or fabric marker
needle and thread, sewing machine, or heavy duty double sided tape
1. With right sides together, fold your fabric the long way (hotdog) and mark the middle with a pin on the folded edge, then fold a second time the hamburger way and move the pin to the true center of your fabric.
2. From the middle point, draw 3 inch arch following the tail with a straight line to the bottom of your fabric
3. Cut on the line then open the fabric up and fold it the hamburger way (right sides together). Your kimono should start to take shape the neck hole in the center.
5.From the top left of the fabric mark 12" down, then mark 7" over, connect the points with a line.
6. Draw a line down to the bottom of the fabric, now cut.
7. Repeat on the right side.
8. Sew together the fabric where you just cut using 5/8" (8" across and down the fabric) creating the sleeve on both sides
9. Hem all the edges with a rolled hem for a clean finish. (fold once, then twice, stitch)
*10. If you are using the double sided tape follow instructions on the box and make sure to fold the hems to where the tape is on the wrong side of the fabric.
