I am trying to make a cosplay for a favorite character of mine. And since I can't find a short plain pink with long selves kimono I am hoping I can find a pattern somewhere and make my own Smiley but while searching online I have come up with nothing Sad Would anyone by chance know where one is?

Oy vay, I hate when I know exactly which page I'm looking for and it takes forever to find!!!

Anyway, this set of pages is awesome. Well-explained, lotsa diagrams, multiple fabric layouts even!

Edit to mention that I own the Folkwear yukata pattern, and it is almost identical to the free page I just listed. Which I didn't find out until AFTER I bought the pattern Tongue

I have to agree with Alexus1325, that site is a great source of information.  I used it to make my first Kimono.
