KIMOWNO: Kimono Gown, renamed for Earth Day!

Mar 14, 2021

“Happiness is the highest form of health.” Dalai Lama

Earth Day has inspired us to rename our Easy Care Easy Wear patient gown to Kimowno . Stay happy, stay comfy, stay healthy. The COVID-19 crisis will be with us for a while, being prepped for home-care will help you be happy and healthy. This super easy pattern is low-waste and low-cost. You’ll need your shoulder width measurement, a bedsheet, sewing machine, thread, scissors, ruler, and pen. Download the Kimowno pattern from here.
