TIP: If using a fabric that frays easily add some bias binding along the front and neckline edges instead of turning under for added strength.

    I wish there was a picture of it without things on top of it so I could see it properly. Better still would be a picture of someone wearing it so we see what it looks like as well as how it fits, how long it is, etc.

      Hi Linda
      A very good point that we’ll remember for future garments. We’ve added another image that will hopefully show the complete kimono a little more clearly. The pattern is a one-size-fits-most style with the length from the centerback neckline as 95cm (37″) if following the instructions exactly.
