Add a stylish layer to your wardrobe this summer with handmade kimono! Our Breezy Kimono is a snap to make, a delight to wear, and we guarantee yours will be uniquely one of a kind! In this 4.5 hour class, Michelle will show you how to cut and construct your own thigh-length kimono, giving tips on choosing fabric, accurate cutting, and simple seam finishes.

Ages 16+ (we are happy to consider younger students on a case-by-case basis - if you are under 16 and would like to take this class, please email lauren@craft-south.com). While prior garment experience is not required to take this class, you must be comfortable threading and operating a sewing machine. Don't know how to use a sewing machine?
