Kimonos are fantastic to both sew and wear
The kimono is originally from Japan. The word for this traditional garment literally means (ki: wear + mono: object = “worn object“, or “object that is worn”). It is usually some sort of a full-length robe.
Today, kimonos are worn all around the world and many designers have used this traditional concept as the base of comfortable and practical new designs.
