28393Re: [SCA-JML] gores and gussets
- Oct 3, 2012Yoinking *Jidai isshou no nuikata* off the shelf... *yoink*
All of the Heian-and-later pleated *hakama *and *sashinuki *have a very
clear square gusset a la Hiraizumi-dono's (Tony's) pattern. However, the
earlier Nara-period reproductions (from Shoso-in examples) tend to be
different, and at least one of those (an "undergarment") has the 3-4 inch
"strip" at the crotch, similar to the one photographed in Honcho-Gunkiko.
(In Nuikata, the same kanji is used for this crotch-piece as for the
gusset in the other cases.)
So, in summary, they're both period approaches, it appears.
