The tees-to-pants tutorial is from Cut Out + Keep. So, simple! I use an XL womens tee for my 7 year-old daughter who wears a size 8-10 girls. I use an XL mens tee for myself. I'm not telling you my size! (smile)
Cut the sleeves, then cut straight just under the neck area.
Cut straight up the middle (for legs).
Open both pieces. Where the sleeves were cut is now the crotch.
With right sides together, sew the crotch (twice, for sturdiness); then sew leg side seams.
Now, sew a waistband. You can use the sleeves. Insert a drawstring or elastic.
This kimono was made using two different printed fabrics. Here's the front!
And, the back!
She loves her kimonos! She always wants me to make more for her!
Until next time, HAPPY SEWING!
