Did you know Martha Stewart sewed her very own wedding dress? This Embrace™ double gauze Kimono may not be as elegant as a wedding dress, but we think you’d get a lot more use from it! Martha features a sewing tutorial for the kimono on her blog.Easy Embrace Kimono sewing tutorial by Martha Stewart and BurdaStyle

A kimono is so versatile! You can wear it during the day, in the evening as a quick accessory, or as a beach cover up, loungewear, or robe.Easy Embrace Kimono sewing tutorial by Martha Stewart and BurdaStyleMeg from BurdaStyle.com designed the Kimono sewing tutorial for Martha.
