    PR INT AND AS S EM B LE THE PATTER N :Using 8.5 x 11 paper, print the pattern pieces. Be sure to select no page scaling when print-ing so the pattern pieces will print true to size.

    TO N OTE B EFO R E B EGINNIN G : All fabric is pre-washed, dried, and ironed Seam allowance is included on the pattern pieces and is 3/8 unless otherwise noted.

    STEP O NE :

    Layout your pattern pieces on top of your fabric and cut 2 Kimono Front (A) pieces (that mirror one another), 1 Kimono Back (B) piece (cut on the fold), and 2 Sleeve (C) pieces (these are rectangles that measure 11.25 x 8.5).

    T IP :Make sure your workspace is big enough! If you are working on a table, make sure all of your fabric is on top of the table so it does not begin to move mid-cutting.

    STEP T WO :Lay the Kimono Back (B) piece right side up and lay the Kimono Top (A) pieces right sides down aligning the shoulder and side seams. Pin and sew these in place using a 3/8 seam allowance. You can usea regular sewing machine or overlock machine.
