17" x 30" for the sode. You're looking at the instructions for making
a paper template. You'd cut the FABRIC on a fold, so it's twice as
long. The eri and okumi pieces are not cut on a fold. (*If you want a
trailing hem, add 12".)

instructions further down the page (look for a heading titled "That
Layering Thing"). You only need a small amount of fabric to make a
false white under-collar. A remnant 6" x 36" should be ample. Fold it
in half and sew it into a tube. You may want to put a layer of
interfacing inside to give it a little crispness. Baste or pin it to
the inside of the purple kosode collar at the nape of the neck so that
just a little bit of the folded over edge peeps out from under the
purple collar layer. You will look like you have a third layer on that
way. ;-D (Note to self, I REALLY need to get pictures of my fake eri
and how to put it on....)
Good luck with your project. Do let us know how it turns out!
