If you want to do a basic Kamakura court look, particularly for summer, you need a white kosode, scarlet nagabakama, hitoe (unlined under-robe) and an uchigi (over robe) in "summer" colors.

Here's my page on a winter ensemble: http://www.wodefordhall.com/display.htm Robe dimensions are here:
There's a nagabakama pattern at http://www.geocities.com/anne_liese_w/Japanese/japmake.htm
