How to Make a No-Sew Ankara Kimono that will have you looking like an International African Queen.



See step-by-step instructions to make the fabulous unisex African fabric kimono with no-sew directions for beginners. In Japan the kimono was orginally called a kosode, a layer of clothing that was worn as undergarments. The kosode which did not have the voluminous sleeves orginally, slowly morphed into the origin of modern kimono we know today. The kimomo is a unisex piece of clothing worn by both men and women.


Kimonos come in infinite variations and this simple no-sew design you will need 1 ½-yards Ankara fabric measuring 45 inches wide. Before beginning to cut, give yourself plenty of room to work with good lighting, check to see if there is a right and wrong side of the fabric or if there is a one-way design.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
