“Composing Patterns” can be said to be the real pleasure of sewing kimono.
It is interesting but hard work.
This time I tried a patterned “yukata“.
At first I measured my sizes of the height, shoulder, arm and hip.
Calculate the length of each part of “yukata” from those data.
Confirm whether the fabric’s length is sufficient.
Roughly compose the patterns of the roll of the fabric.
I decided on that.
Compose all parts of “yukata“.
Have a look.
All parts are cut off.
The impression of patterns will a little bit different from the finishing because they have margins.
Just look at the composition of “It should be.”
“Which do you like better, many patterns or simple ones?”
I asked myself about the collar.
I chose the simple patterns (the right photo)
because I like the kimono body’s photo of “Sewing yukata : soaking and lining up texture“.
I’ve already finished sewing “yukata”. This is that.
The composition of patterns in kimono has the priorities.
1. The upper body on the left panel.
2. The upper panel around 60 centimeters from the hem.
3. The lower part of the back panel.
Different compositions give you different impressions.
How about your “yukata“?
