without sleeves. It is one large rectangle at the back, and two thin
rectangles hanging down the front. One of the easiest garments to
make (not sure why I haven't made more... hmmm). If you want to get
really spiffy, you can set pleats in the front--this will give you a
slight 'wing' look if you pull it off right without giving you the
monster Edo-period bamboo-reinforced parasails.
Oh, and if you are going to put a design on the back, make sure you
measure where it will fall so it doesn't hide behind your koshi-himo
of your hakama! (Oops :0)
