Lovely project! I would love a kimono of my own. If I could make one without sucking that'd be great! Even just a simple one. Love any tips or tutorials you could point me to!
I have a Japanese Kimono pattern book for kids but I don't really understand the instructions. I used my own Yukata (store bought) as a guide too. I had problems finding a tutorial for kimono/yukata in English online which was why I bought the book from eBay.
Thank you all very much! And to answer some questions:
- My mum who is a seamstress taught me to take measurements of my daughter and then we figured out the yukata pattern from a Japanese Kimono pattern book (I'm very bad in my Japanese and didn't understand a lot of the instructions!). We also used my yukata as a template.
- We are in Australia... it's the wrong season for fireworks. Hahahaha. Wish we were living in Japan!
