Why is someone with a Korean name wearing a Japanese outfit? you may ask.
Where would a time-traveling secret agent be without a few disguises?
This kimono uses RequiemArt's pattern, which can be found at her Etsy shop. The sewing techniques are quite simple (no darts!), but the result is a very nicely fitted kimono.
I used a thin cream cotton with a red-and-pink floral pattern for the body of the yukata, and a dark red cotton with a lighter floral pattern for the obi.
The original pattern instructions didn't mention hemming the wrists--I hemmed them so that they would be less likely to fray.
It looks like I somehow avoided the granny knot problems of earlier! The bow is wonderfully horizontal. I am very proud of myself.
The obi is attached at the back with two small snaps. The actual kimono doesn't need any attachments--it stays together because the obi is tight around the Pullip's waist.
The shoulders are a little tight, as you may be able to see in these pictures. I'm not sure whether that's a problem with the pattern or my sewing was insufficiently precise (probably the latter, based on my track record).
I'll try making the front pieces wider next time (or even flared slightly) and see if that improves things. (Just watch, I'm going to forget to make the collar longer as well...)
In the meantime, I've found another use case for the boxers.
