Making Kimono & Japanese Clothes
by Jenni Dobson
(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(5)
Any dressmaker, quilter, or embroiderer who has ever felt inspired by the elegant design of Japanese clothes will find everything needed to start stitching in this comprehensive and luxurious sourcebook. In addition to colorful photos and illustrations that provide a history of the kimono and other Japanese garments, there are patterns, practical diagrams, and instructions for assembly. Each style receives loving attention, with something for everyone: kimonos for men, women, and children; mompe, the traditional trousers worn by both sexes; the short versions of kimono known as hippari and jimbei; and waistcoats, including a child's chan-chanko. The information on decorative stitching, adding motifs, dying the fabric, silk painting, and the Japanese sense of aesthetics provide invaluable guidance in constructing the final piece.
