Sewing yukata : composing Patterns

“Composing Patterns” can be said that it is the real pleasure of sewing kimono.

It is extremely interesting but hard work.

This time I tried a patterned “yukata“.

What I did before cutting

At first I measured my sizes of the height, shoulder, arm and hip.

Calculate the length of each part of “yukata” according to those data.

Check if the fabric is long enough.

Roughly compose the patterns of the roll of the fabric.

Finally I decided the composition.

Then cut!

 

 

Cut the fabric

 

裁断 糸を引くところ/pulling out the thread

 

Pull out the thread by cutting the ear of the cloth a little.

It is easy to pull out heavy yarn and cotton, but silk is difficult because it is very thin and often breaks.

Please do it slowly.

Is this way of cutting unique to Japanese sewing?

 

 

裁断!/cut the cloth

 

Cut it along the line drawn thread.

 

 

From composing to finishing

Compose all parts of “yukata“. 

Have a look.

 

柄組み合せ/compose patterns

 

The impressions are different. It depends on how the patterns on the collar are placed.

All parts are cut off.

The impression of patterns will be a little bit different from the finishing because they have margins to be sewn.

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”.

Here it is.
仕上がり 表

 

The composition of kimono patterns 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.

 

 

 

Upper left : in front of the upper body.

Lower left : The back style wearing a soft obi sash called “heko obi”.

Right : The pattern on the left upper body is the most important.

 

How about your “yukata“?
