I have just finished sewing a kimono jacket using Florence Kimono pattern by Sew Caroline and Lady McElroy Oriental Koi fabric. The fabric is polyester crepe and does fray when working with it.  I started to use french seams as stated in the pattern and then switched to my overlocker to finish the kimono. I made the hip-length version.  The pattern also provides for crop and knee length versions. Perfect for summer evenings or beach cover-up!
