      IIRC, it is actually an early version of the bat-winged article of clothing that was mentioned. There is also a picture of one in the version of Musashi's Book of Five Rings...it's a painting of Musashi, and he's wearing something like this.

      Very possibly incorrect recollections:

      I have seen this garment in movies, and I think in a book or pattern, but I
      cannot quite remember the name. Could it be a jinbaori (sp?) ? As I recall,
      you can do quite a number of variations on the basic haori, which is
      essentially a short kosode without the overlap panels added - with sleeves or
      without (and different shapes of sleeves), with side seams sewn or with them
      open or semi open with a chain stitch, with a split back hem or without, etc.
      etc. Amazing what you can do with just a bunch of rectangles. My favorite
      sewing utensils are a rafter square and a chalk line. :-)
