Hello everyone, I’m Rin. I’m visiting today from my sewing blog, Sew in Love. I’m very excited to share this sewing tutorial for a boho kimono dress here at So-Sew-Easy!
The inspiration for this dress came from a maxi dress I saw at Free People. I was looking for a bohemian, comfortable dress with a high waistline to accommodate my growing pregnant belly. I’m quite pleased with the result, and I have been wearing the dress now at 8 months pregnant, so it’s definitely comfortable! I’m sure I’ll continue to wear it post pregnancy as well.
Let’s get started.
To sew your Kimono Dress Pattern, you will need:
- 2 yards or 1.8 metres minimum of fabric: I suggest something with a slight drape, such as rayon
- Elastic (1/5” or 5mm wide)
This video tutorial takes you step by step, how to measure and cut the pattern, and how to sew everything together.

To make it a little easier for you to draw your own sewing pattern, here’s the diagrams from the video.
Please make sure you do a practice run using scrap fabric, because everyone’s measurements are different! I made my dress to fall just below the knees, but I think it would be suitable for evening if you make it into a maxi dress.
The simple cut of this dress makes it a great sewing pattern to show off fun prints – what fabric will you use to make your boho kimono dress?
