      EEP! That would complicate things. I know that for a kosode (for example), I cut and assemble a lining that mirrors the outer shell except for the collar (which folds over).

      Remember, the garment might be completely taken apart, basted back into its bolt form so it could be cleaned and stretched for drying, then the "bolt" unstitched and the cleaned garment put back together. Ditto any linings.
