Sewing yukata : composing Patterns

GO TO ENGLISH TOP

“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“.

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

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

Check if the fabric is long enough.

Roughly compose the patterns of the roll of the fabric.

 I decided on that.

Then cut!

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 others are difficult because they often breaks. Please do it slowly. The way of cutting is unique to Japanese sewing?

 

 

裁断!/cut the cloth

Cut along the drawn thread line.

 

Compose all parts of “yukata“.

Have a look.

柄組み合せ/compose patterns

The impression depends on how the pattern is placed on the collar.

 

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 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.

 

 

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“?
