I am in love with kimonos recently. They go with everything whether it be jean shorts or a maxi dress. My problem was that I did not have enough of a variety, nor could I find any really long ones that I love. So, I took it into my own hands to figure it out, literally. Here I will show you how to make a kimono from something we all have in our closets I am sure… a scarf.
I have had this scarf for as long as I can remember. It is super summery, but it is way to hot in the summer in Utah to wear it as a scarf. So, I usually wear it at the pool and that is about all the use it gets. I love the colors and how tropical it makes me feel. Your going to start off by holding the top corners.
Then you are going to fold it in half horizontally.
Now you will be holding the folded edge and two raw edges. You are going to bring the corners together and knot them.
Once it is knotted, grab the opened edge and peel it open. The end result will leave you with two arm holes and the knot will be located at your neck.
I got so many compliments on it today and people could not believe that it was just a scarf. I would recommend using longer scarves. Just one more use for all those scarves we have stashed in our closets….or is that just me lol.
