Cloth Doll Making > Kimono doll > Kimono
This is rather simple kimono. If you feel difficulty, omit the lining.
Cut the parts of kimono. The seam allowance is about 0.5cm.
The collar is about 5cm × 45cm (include allowance).
Sleeves and bottom are lined with thin cloth.
The length of the lining of bottom is about 35cm.
When you omit linings, the margin must be wider. Refere to Juban.

Sew up the front and the back at the sides. (e-f)
Sew the lining to the bodice.(n-m-f-b--)
Put a strip of cotton batting on the seam allowance of the hem.

Turn inside out. Stitch the hem roughly to fix the fuki.
Sew the collar to neckline (n-a-n).
Fold the collar and stitch the hem.
The width of collar is 2cm.
