Sewing 102: The Cocoon Kimono

Instructor: Malene Davis 
Length:  2  hours 
Minimum Age: 18+
Minimum Enrollment: 
3 students 

Maximum Enrollment:  10 students  


To join us for this workshop, you must have taken our Intro to the Sewing Machine workshop, or have knowledge on how to properly thread a machine AND spool a bobbin on your own.  Experience sewing apparel is a plus, but is not required so long as you are able to navigate and troubleshoot the machine on your own. 


The days are getting warmer, and it's time to gussy up those outfits with a lil' something extra.  This cocoon kimono is stylish, comfortable, flowy, and (best of all) EASY to make.  

Who knew sewing a sleek silhouette could be so simple? With a simple cut here, a tuck and seam there, and you'll be zipping out multiple kimonos - in all sizes, colors and fabrics - in no time. 

  • 2 yards fabric (we highly recommend a flowy or poly blend knits. MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT BEING GIVEN A STRETCH KNIT FOR SWIMSUITS!).  Any lightweight or medium weight fabric with some movement will work, however voile, chiffon, rayon and silks are NOT recommended for beginners, as these fabrics take more control and knowledge with the machine. If you're versed working with these fabrics, be sure to bring them along. Lightweight cottons are always a great option for beginners.  
  • All other materials will be provided for the workshop

This project is swift and fast, and you may be able to go home with TWO cardigans, so bring along extra fabric, just in case. 

NO NEED TO BRING YOUR MACHINE!  In all bee creative workshops, you'll use our Brother sewing machines to complete your wares (we love our Brother machines.... Great starter machines for all).
