Free download of my PDF facemask pattern and a tutorial video: https://www.palaceseamstress.com I believe, as a professional seamstress, such a thing should be subtle, well-fitting and sustainable.

About my "Make Your Own Kimono Item Kit" (MYOKIK) range.
The background: Kimonos are beautiful but too complicated to wear and not practical for our modern life-style.

A Kimono is made from one long and narrow piece of silk fabric. Everything is cut in straight lines and every stitch is hand-sewn. It is cleverly designed, the material is to be unpicked and re-used and the fabric is often reversible as well.

As a professional dressmaker who disagrees with textile waste and "fast fashion", I believe there is a lot to learn from the way Kimonos are made. I am always on the look out for modern and timeless designs which can be loved for a long time.

What is MYOKIK:
I choose one or two vintage Kimono (or Obi maybe Juban) then think of an item, depending on their composition, colour and condition. I then unpick, clean, mend, cut, divide, patch, make a sample and create the instructions for my sewing kits.
You just sew and make it your own. I do all the daunting tasks, you do the fun bits!
