I found a tip many years ago on a shirt pattern for an easier way to put in sleeves : sew your front panels to the back only at the shoulders. Pin the sleeve pieces right sides together to the shoulders, matching ends. Sew the entire underarm and sleeve seam at once.
Saves a lot of hassle, especially if the sleeve is gathered. I always put in sleeves this way now, even if the pattern says to do it the old way.

This is an excellent way to sew tiny (Barbie) clothes as well.

This looks interesting, but I must have missed something. I understand to deconstruct and get stuck. I don't see anything that changes the shape of the pieces. It looks like I'm to deconstruct and then reconstruct without changing anything. Any help here?

yup, that's basically it :)

People seem to be missing the fact that you use the old kimono, deconstructed, as a PATTERN for the new kimono! You are not taking it apart just to put it back together again.

Set in sleeves really aren't hard...just takes practice lol! Sew them in a circle as above..set the sleeve inside the blouse..RIGHT sides together! Match the bottom seam with pins. The secret to making it look nice is to have the top (shoulder) area be smooth. To do this..pin the rest of the sleeve to the blouse...making sure not to have any tucks in the top shoulder area. Sew slowly over the shoulder area. Press the seam allowance towards the blouse..gently..and bang! You've got a beautiful shoulder seam that looks professional instead of homemade :)

Not always comfortable that way. To have full benefit of a set in sleeve, sew only to the front and back notches in the flat. then sew the side seam, the sleeve seam and then sew the balance of the sleeve into the amscye between the notches. Perfect sleeves every time. I've sewn my set in sleeves that way for 50 plus years.

Why don't you deconstruct your old Kimono, buy a roll of fabric tracing paper or a roll of white paper at Staples. Trace the old kimono on to the paper and then you have a paper pattern to use any time. Sew your old kimono back together. Then you can have more than one kimono, plus your fav old one to wear.
