Hello: This is my first post here, so I hope am doing this correctly!

Do you know where I might find a pattern for a kimono style Japanese apron? They typically have a square neck and sleeves that are not set in (name?)they are about knee length and have three ties in the back.

Thank you,

Elona

Of the type with the cut-on sleeve that you describe, here is photo illustration of the cutting process.

The majority of the patterns I've seen have a set-in sleeve. Here is one.

There's a cutting diagram for one about halfway down the page here.

And two commercial kappogi patterns are shown on this page.

Etsy and ebay often have these patterns, but they are equally often sold!

Is this what you're looking for? Folkwear Michiyuki
(ah, not quite).

Here's a commercial pattern: BudoBear Patterns Kappogi on Amazon.

Thank you both very much ! That should take me to 'wear' I want to be (in the kitchen with a clean shirt!)

Best,

These were really popular in the 70's, and referred to as 'mamasan' aprons. Simplicity did a remake of their original pattern, it's 2950.
Although it's shown here on PR, I didn't notice it's now discontinued. ):

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Oh, you enablers, you!!!! I read this post yesterday, which started me on a marathon of apron-related web surfing.

The Simplicity 2950 is out of print, and I couldn't find a copy for sale in the usual places (Etsy, eBay, various vintage pattern sellers). If I could find a copy, I'd snap it up; very nice pattern.

Since I couldn't find a Simplicity 2950, I bought THREE other apron patterns, including the Round Earth Publishing Kappogi pattern. (And Simplicty 2162 for the pullover apron and Butterick 5509 for view E with the princess seams.)

As if I don't already have a rather robust collection of apron patterns, but, of course, I don't have a Kappogi pattern (or the other 2 patterns I ordered). I've been on the lookout for an apron that actually will cover me keep stuff OFF me when I cook; a half apron is mostly useless for me. AND one that does not have a strap that goes around the back of the neck such that the apron hangs off your neck, not your shoulders, which I find annoying (YMMV).

It's all your fault!

I suppose I should sew up some aprons for Xmas presents now...as justification for WHY I need more apron patterns.

Enablers is right--but how nice!

Sewingpatterns.com has Simplicity 2950 as a download, so of course I went for it!

Years ago, I had a kappogi, and it really was my favorite apron.
