      A clean (nice pattern, nice color) kosode with a clean apron (perhaps). Common
      folk have it easy in costume stuff. This is actually a hard one for me, as the
      ones who have that type of function tend to be... well, men, and men's garb is
      easier to suggest for something like that since women don't typically (never
      that I know of) function in that way...

      Actually, anywhere would be likely. There are places more famous for pottery
      (good clay to start with, I guess). Your pottery books should talk about places
      like Seto and so on.
