in CA who ships them across the country. Otherwise, look for someone
nearby (your local SCA branch should be able to help you out). Look at
www.sca.org for the marshal handbooks which will tell you what kind of
measurements you will need.

I would recommend starting with a kosode and hakama. Look under the
'files' section of the Yahoo!groups page for patterns--they are fairly
easy. Check with your local Arts and Sciences minister if you need help
putting them together; most places I know have garb workshops at least
once a month, if not more. Japanese garb is nice because it is basically
rectangles, for the most part.

(hitatare without the arms). For leisure wear you want a dobuku, and
perhaps a jinbaori when you start fighting. For information on any of
these, check out www.sengokudaimyo.com--look at the clothing section.

a good idea to translate it also as not everybody understands Japanese).
Go to www.sca.org for more info on local groups, as I believe someone else
Hope we are helping!
