After being on the hunt for the perfect kimono that didn’t have fringe longer than my entire body, or overly weird florals from top to bottom (says the girls wearing a 90’s leaf print above. Oh, the irony…), I have finally decided to make my own.

To start, I needed the actually kimono itself, which I found in the form of what Amazon calls a “sheer cardigan”. No clue why, considering it has no buttons or closures, is knee length, and is almost totally sheer. Alas, I refuse to bite the hand that feeds my Amazon Prime addiction, so I’ll let them call it whatever they want. Around here though, we’re going to call it a DIY poolside pattern kimono, okay?

Once you’ve printed the designs onto fabric transfer sheets, it’s really as easy as cutting them out and ironing them on. That said, I DO have some tips I learned along the way.

– I ironed my designs for about 30 seconds longer than the instructions said, and it worked MUCH better.

– I also peeled the adhesive backing off of the designs before they cooled onto the fabric which meant I didn’t get weird glossy edges as bad.

– If you cut around the edges of the design as closely as possible (this is easiest for the leaves), it gives a far better outcome as far as avoiding the crafty looking clear transfer border.

Before I ironed anything on though, I made a place of where I wanted to design to go to get an idea of the general spacing beforehand, which saved me a ton of time once I realize how many more designs we’d have to cut if I made the pattern closer together!

By the time I realized what a time suck this project was after making two kimonos (too honest?) I gave up on the eye print, but I decided to offer it here for you still just in case someone preferred it best!

Now the only catch is that you have to enjoy your new kimono verrrry carefully because it’s hand wash only. Muahaha! Just kidding, we all know that’s not funny, especially for me and my clumsy self.

    Definitely taking in the summer with all these bright clothes and flamingos!

    PS. that would make scary looking macaron with the eye template. I think I might try it. :o

    Love the flamingo one! These are great and look better than a lot of the “kimonos” they have out there! Thanks for sharing! :)

  • These turned out so well! I’ve never tried anything with fabric transfers…you make it look easy, though. Such a cute and inspiring DIY :)

    This looks amazing! I wish I’d seen this earlier – I’m about to go on a beach holiday and I’ve been searching and searching for a kimono I love with no luck! The patterns are gorgeous xx

    I tried to find the kimono on amazon. Maybe they are sold out but I could not find the one you purchased. Can you tell me which one it was? I really love the style and thought I’d try one on my own.
