    This pattern is great. It’s easy to follow, has options for fast and slower versions. The gown itself is super comfy, and a good length. I really love it.

    This version was a gift which I photographed before wrapping – I definitely need one for myself.

    This fabric is an ikat from Merchant and Mills, really lovely to work with. There’s more detail, and photos, on my blog

  2. 5 out of 5 Tropical Suki Kimono

    Holly Stevens

    The Suki Kimono by Helen’s Closet is a chic, versatile robe pattern which can be worn as a cover up/outerwear in the summer or a dressing gown for any time of year. It’s got multiple styling options including a short or long length, optional waist tie or different contrast neckband variations.
    As my time was slightly limited I went for the simpler version of extending the neckband piece the whole way round, there’s a great tutorial for how to do this on Helens blog. The fabric I used was this amazing crepe from Sewalicious, it’s reasonably lightweight and has a gorgeous green leaf pattern covering it. The colours are so vibrant and I thought it’d be perfect for this pattern!
    Despite making the smallest size these pattern pieces are quite fabric hungry! I had 2 metres to play with and this was only just enough. I couldn’t follow the layplan and ended up playing pattern piece Tetris!

  3. Suki kimono


    This Suki Kimono is a Christmas gift for my sister in law. I was drawn to this pattern by 2 details -the shorter sleeve length & how the robe flares over the hips.
    Because the holiday is fast approaching and I have other gifts to sew, I omitted the pockets & inner ties and extended the front band to full length.The pattern is drafted for someone who is 5ft6 and my SIL is only 5ft. So, I reduced the length by 6 inches.

    The Suki Kimono is a beautiful feminine make that anyone would love.

    If you are someone intimidated by pdfs, give this pattern a go. This pdf pattern is layered allowing you to select a single size to print. I appreciated this feature.

  4. Suki kimono


    I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for the Suki Kimono – it is honestly one of my most favoured Makes EVER! This is a superb pattern, wonderfully drafted. It has been designed with adventurous beginners mind but with a few options to elevate it to intermediate should you want to.

    I didn’t have to make any alterations to it all, apart from taking a couple of inches off the overall length. The sleeves are the perfect length and width; you’re not in danger of flashing anything you’d rather not through them! There are inner waist ties as well as affixed outer ties to keep things together, hanging and tie loops and, Yey, pockets large enough to stash your ‘phone or a crafty pack of biscuits!! It’s a fantastic oppportunity to really play with print too. A real wardrobe must have; you don’t realise how much you need one until you’ve made one! I also made a cute pair of matching slippers for mine!!
