When I was a teenager I saw really pretty kimono paper dolls in a Japanese department store. I wanted to learn to make them so badly but it was hard to find patterns/ books without the internet those days (I sound old LOL) So I kept going back to the store to look very carefully at every single doll on display, and would watch old, dubbed Japanese drama on TV just to have better view of real kimono. Few years back I created my own patterns and made Japanese dolls that look a lot like those I saw in the store!  Cheesy I later learned that they are called "washi ningyo" (washi=Japanese handmade paper; ningyo=doll).


And here are some simple tutorials for ponytail & obi

Hello! My name is Megan and I'm addicted to fabric. Hey, isn't the first step to recovery admitting that you have a problem?

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I've only seen kits for flat dolls that are sometimes called warabe, not 3D Smiley

There is some origami involved, for example the "obi" in my tutorial pictures. I also did some folding to form the kimono.
