28394Re: gores and gussets
- Oct 4, 2012Abe-dono, where does the rectangular gusset go? Is it like where you'd measure rise or is it 90 degrees opposite?
Can someone post a link to a picture?
Partly I'm curious because I know Lady Roxanne's hakama pattern includes a strip that goes ankle to ankle along the inseam. I don't know whether that's based on historical research or on making a nice looking pair of pants. (It does work out nicely.) http://www.yamakaminari.com/HowTo/RoxannesGarb/RoxanneHakama4Pennsic.pdf
