Suki Sewalong: Hem and Finish

Suki Sewalong: Hem and Finish

Posted by Helen | June 16, 2018 | Suki Kimono

It is the final day of the Suki Kimono sewalong! We are going to sew the back ties onto the kimono and hem it. I hope you have enjoyed following along with me and I know you will love lounging in your Suki for years to come!  You can view all the posts in the Suki Sewalong here.


Get the Suki Kimono Pattern


Let’s get started! If you are missing your back tie markings, you can add them in now.

Pin the ties at the back markings, with the raw edge of the tie pointing away from the center back.

Sew the ties in place 1/4″ from the raw edge. Press the ties over and sew them again at a 3/8″ to hide the raw edge.

Press the bottom hem up 1/2″.

Fold the hem up 1/2″ again and press.

Sew the hem to complete your Suki Kimono!

You’re finished! I hope you have enjoyed sewing Suki and are excited to have a lovely robe for yourself or a loved one.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments or via email at

Happy sewing!
