There is a book out by John Marshall, called "Make your own Japanese
clothes". This book has an exellent uchikake pattern that can be
customised to fit anyone. Basically, you take the required
measurements of the person you are making the garment for, and use
those to draft the pattern. I think the book is around $25 US, but
that is not unreasonable, considering the number of garments included,
and compared to paper patterns. It also contains a great deal of info
you will not find in a paper pattern. I think this would be well worth
