Kochi Kimono

A review of Papercut Patterns Luna Jacket

Reviewed by heritageninja on 21st January, 2018

I went completely maverick with this kimono pattern from Papercut Patterns, ignored their fabric advice that it should be made out of anything as long as it was woven and made this out of a wool mix knit fabric. Doh. However, it seems to be holding up okay. I struggled with both the neck band and pockets because of my own silly choice of fabric.
It’s a really easy pattern with both lined and unlined versions and choice of pockets or without pockets. I went for version three (unlined with a neck band) and added pockets it it. The pattern really does run large and despite measuring the size S, I went with size XS and it still seems oversized (it fits around the shoulders though). It’s pretty boxy in such a thick fabric but I love the shape. I’d recommend making this – I’ll be making another in something woven and drapey next!
