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... Undecided...but can't help myself Tongue)  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.

You did a fabulous job!!!! I would like to know how to sew a Yukata too, but I am still fighting with mi Kimono Hoodie: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.msg1833535#msg1833535

If you ever sew the Kimono with other fabric, please post it!!!!!!

PS I also have a lot of things to do instead of sewing but I just ignore them  Tongue

Thanks all!  M.Carmen: here is an update--->
Since, the yukata/kimono/haori is very similar, I decided to do my "learning" with the haori because it takes less fabric to practice.  Here is the adjusted "yukata"...it is now a cropped haori.  I like it this way better!

Here is another Haori of longer length in blue floral fabric:

notice the wonky left collar...this is what happens when you don't cut on grain.Undecided

*yay* CheesyMy brother wants a Haori now, so I will be updating later with progress.  I'm excited, I wonder if he will wear it to school?

well, I used the same "pattern" for the yukata as the haori; the only difference is rhe length of the bodice.  This "pattern" was arrived at by guesstimation based on measurements found on yamatoku and instructions found on nunodoll maker site.  It most likely is not 100% accurate  Undecided, but it will do for now!

I love the haori; that is definitely something I would wear.
