Hi, I am making the this pattern now for a Kimono for my 21 y.o. daughter who is studying Japanese and loves all things Japanese. She picked a cream and pink brocade for the kimono and a beautiful green brocade for the obi (it matches the leaves in the pinkish brocade. Did you find the length to be o.k. or did you have to alter for it. My daughter is 5'5.5" and I usually have to adjust quite a bit. I hate to waste this beautiful brocade. This is going to be an expensive costume, but she plans to take it to Japan when she goes there for a semester of study.

This is soooo beautiful! The fabrics you used are just perfect. Shame it was so hard to construct, but my-o-my, it was worth it from where I'm sitting. It looks very authentic. Huge kudos mate! Well done!

It looks really great. I have this pattern for years but still haven't try it. I just bought the fabric and getting ready to start.

Hi Looks like from your bio info you are in Calif. Any chance you were able to see the Itchiku Kubota kimono exhibit in San Diego? It is now in Canton O very near Akron O (my location) and I saw it Saturday. AWESOME to say the least. Link is http://www.kimonoexhibit.com I clicked on your kimono review mostly because of my curiosity about kimonos . the Itchiku Kubota kimonos were not designed to be actually worn.. but I was curious how the layers went together and how they were seamed. Especially the padded rolled multiple hem layers at the bottom. Best part was a sample of the exquisitely dyed and manipulated silk you were allowed to touch!!!!!! I want to make a kimono now too. Thanks for sharing!

This is breathtakingly beautiful. Perfect fabrics. Too bad it was such a struggle to construct but the results are worth it. Amazing job!
