events, how often do you see proper kosode sleeves, and how often do you see
square kimono sleeves? In my mind, it's like trying to make a 17th Century coat
(à la King Geo. I) and using a modern jacket pattern.
I think there are other places to get kimono/kosode patterns that address
historical concerns and which don't do horrid things to nice historical clothing
like turning them into party wear. <G>
For the record, I do have a copy of the book, but I don't trust it. I keep it
more as a reference (because so many other folks have it and use it).
