Ann asked whether she could sew the kimono by hand.
Of course you can do it by hand Ann, especially as it's so small!
When I started sewing (making dolls) in January 2004, I didn't have a machine. I've only had a sewing machine for one year! I received it in August 2004.
(You can see some of my hand-sewn dolls and teddies here. Other things that I sewed entirely by hand are shown here.)
Kimonos (and clothes for that matter!) have existed for thousands of years... but the sewing machine is only 150 years old!
(That being said... I couldn't do without it now I have one!)
