        If this is the site I think it is, I used these instructions to make my
        Hakama too. I did things a bit differently than the instructions,
        though. After I cut the leg pieces out, I folded and pressed the pleats,
        then used basting stitches to hold them in place while I stitched the
        legs together. I also used french seams and of course, made sure that
        the pleats faced inward, toward the center.
        And the backplate? Ditch it. It's a post period affectation, as far as I
        know.

            Noble Cousins!

            Greetings from Solveig! Line drawings in Edo Fukushokushi suggest that
            extensive pleating of hakama may be a Meiji era innovation. Certainly,
            thre are photographs of hakama in the nuikata book which have very little
            no pleating. Having worn modern hakama, I can safely say that they are
            much more extensively pleated than the hakama depicted in either book.
