I always wanted to learn how to make a kimono/yukata, and am finally getting around to it (instead of working on finding a job... ...but can't help myself ) So after hours of searching Craftster and the internet, here is the first run. All sewn by hand. This helps me understand why there is a need for the kimono/yukata to be so long. I left the sleeve opening too wide, and the sleeve is too long...I think the extra width can be used as overlap pieces. And the neck is too wide as well as badly attached.
You don't have to read all that...it was more of a "note to self"-type rambling. I am hoping this post can turn into an "Exploratory" Thread as I work towards a yukata. So here are the pictures of it and my attempt at dressing it (sure was hard!)with all the makeshift accessories.
