Re: [SCA-JML] help - a garb question
- Greetings and well met,
There is no mystery about Japanese garbs, the simples been the Kosode (sort
of underwear) this is the first layer of clothing as it goes under all other
Kimono types, you can choose a simple patterns such as a white Kosode and a
couple of color ones atop (ea. white, light blue, dark blue or black or any
other color which contrast with the lighter ones). As with the shape it's all
about rectangles, if you follow the links provided by Izumi-jime you should be
able to put together something, in the last year, I have put together a
number of male garbs from the Sengoku Daimyo site (Izumi send you a link) and the
instructions were simple to follow (I am no expert at sewing).
Hope this all help and welcome to our site, please feel free to write with
more questions and browse through our "files" section on this site, you will
find a lot of patterns.
To ask a question may be a moments shame,
But not to ask and remain ignorant is a life long shame.

It IS modern, especially all the stuff in section 3.1 about sleeves.
It's a nice, basic overview if you're interested in the evolution of
modern women's kimono, otherwise, it may just confuse you.
