linen hakama & a white linen kosode...So if I understand this
correctly, I now need a uchiki next on top of my kosode. I really

Well lets try this a bit backwards, with my choice of cloth. I had a
friend that has recently moved & gave me yards of silk cloth (Yeap, I
did a burn test on it). it is a very dark blue to a black with a thin
pin stripe that repeats every 4 inches or so. What period would this
cloth best fall under for a woman &/or a man? (If I can not use it I
plan to make a set of japanese garb for my boyfriend.)
