A. Center is correct. Theoretically correct position is center, and that’s magnified. Strictly speaking, inside and outside are wrong.

 

Q.Why should I sew both of pater pattern and fabric instead of tracing lines to fabric?

A.The target of this paper patter is beginners without experience. For experienced users, please use this paper pattern as you prefer such as tracing lines on your own.

I chose stretchy fabric called Takashima Chijimi (高島ちぢみ), that’s cool and comfortable in summer.

Necessary fabric length & width

Necessary length & width are different depending on aligning each part. So this table is the size you need at each size and at each aligning.

スクリーンショット 2021-08-16 220217

* Orange background parts mean width is more than 110cm. Green means width is less than 110cm.

Now, I’m going to explain the aligning in the following figures.

Migoro, Okumi, left half Base collar
Sleeve, Cover collar
right half Base collar (horizontal)

It’s preferable that Base collar is not separated and is horizontal.

But this aligning is what I cheated for saving fabric.

For people who want correct process without confusion, please choose the other options.

Right half Base collar is not visible when it’s worn, so it’s inclined 90 degrees.

20210714_1_eng

Migoro, Okumi, Base collar
Sleeve, Cover collar

If the size is small such as S, this is the most efficient aligning. On the other hand, big size such as L exceeds width 110cm, and you would need to use wider fabric.

20210714_2_eng

Mgoro, Base collar
Sleeve
Okumi, Cover collar

Any size doesn’t exceed width 110cm. You can cut off fabrics without cheating and confusion. However, the bad point is that necessary length is long.

This is the table about how many pages you need to print out at each size.

N21: Sew hem

Try it on before sewing. Fix the fold on the hem by clothes pin or something.

Wear it like real coordination. Confirm the size. If the hem line is wrong, modify it to heigher or lower, and iron the hem along with the modified line.

Paper pattern for kimono – N18 to N20



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

 

N18: Sew collar on kimono body

Put together Jieri (base collar) and Kakeeri (cover collar), in the condition where the front side and the back side match. At that time, match the center line.

12

 

Match Sechushin (背中心, Center line of Migoro) and the center of collar.

Match the front side of collar and the front side of Migoro (Body).

Put marking pins.

13

 

Sew together collar and Migoro.

IMG_7441

 

It’ll look like this.

IMG_7442

IMG_7443

 

A little edge of Jieri (base collar) will be left over, and this will be seam allowance.

IMG_7444

 

View from the inside.

IMG_7446

 

Fold the collar into half, and put marking pins. At that time, note that width of back side (inside) of the collar will be longer than the front side (outside).

IMG_7447

N19: Sew Jieri edge

Fold edge of jieri (base collar) that was left over.

IMG_7450

 

Fold it to half and put marking pins. At that time, fold it so that the back side (inside) is a little wider than the front side (outside).

IMG_7452

 

Sew straight the edge of Jieri by sewing machine.

IMG_7458

N20: Sew the opposite side of collar

Sew together the opposite side of collar from kimono’s front side (outside). Sew Migoro (Body) but sew the line really close to collar. Feel by your nail that there is collar fabric under the migoro, to confirm you’re sewing together Migoro and collar. Sew slowly.

Paper pattern for kimono – N16 to “Remove all paper patterns”



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

 

N16: Iron hem

Mitake (height from hem to shoulder) is what can most easily have error, when it comes to tailoring. I designed long seam allowance, 5cm, for hem so that you can adjust Mitake at last when you try it on.

So sew hem at last after you wear the kimono as test. For now, just iron this part.

First, fold the paper over, along with the dashed lines.

IMG_7401

 

And then, form a fold on the fabric by ironing both of the fabric and paper.

7

IMG_7403

N17: Iron collar

Put the paper pattern of collar on fabric, put marking pins, and cut off the fabric.

8

 

Fold only the paper pattern, and then iron both of the fabric and the paper together.

9

“Back side” has 3mm longer width than “Front side”. Please remember this for the time when you sew collar onto Migoro (Body).

 

Peal off the paper pattern.

10

Peal off all the paper pattern

Holes were made on the paper because you sew this by sewing machine. Now it’s easy to tear off the paper. Withdraw it along with the seam, and tear it off.

IMG_7404

 

There’ll be a lot of trash.

IMG_7408

 

After pealing off the paper.

Paper pattern for kimono – N12 to N15



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

 

N12: Sew together under sleeves

Fold the sleeve on the shoulder line into half, and sew together the bottom of the sleeve on the N12 line.

IMG_7369

N13: Seam allowance of sleeve root and under cuff

Zig-zag sew seam allowance of sleeve root one by one.

6

 

Zig-zag sew under cuff one by one.

IMG_7377

N14: Seam allowance of cuff and under sleeve root

The fabric of cuff already has a fold by iron, so sew it straight by sewing machine as it is.

IMG_7378

 

You made a fold under the sleeve root by iron earlier, so sew it straight by sewing machine.

IMG_7385

N15: Seam allowance of sleeve bottom

Zig-zag sew together two fabrics on the bottom part of the sleeve.

IMG_7391

Paper pattern for kimono – N9 to N11



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

N9: Sew together left and right sides of body

Sew straight along with N9 line. By that, sew together Front Migoro (Body) and Back Migoro on the left and right sides.

IMG_7357

N10: Seam allowance of sleeve root to left & right sides of body

Zig-zag sew sleeve root and Miyatsuguchi.

Sleeve root (Sodetsuke 袖付) is the line between Migoro (Body) and sleeve.

Miyatsuguchi (身八つ口) is a hole under sleeve root only for women. You can put your hands thorough this to inside kimono.

IMG_7359

 

Zig-zag sew two fabrics together, as for left and right sides of Migoro (Body).

IMG_7365

N11: Miyatsuguchi

Fold Miyatsuguchi once, and there will be two layers. Sew the two together straight.

Paper pattern for kimono – N7 to N8



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

N7: Iron Cuff, Sleeve Bottom, Sleeve Root

About dashed lines on sleeves.

IMG_7331

 

Fold the paper over.

IMG_7332

 

Fold the paper and fabric together, and form a fold on the fabric by iron.

IMG_7333

 

There’re dashed lines on both sides of the sleeve. Do the same for both sides.

Furthermore, do the same for both of left and right sleeves.

N8: Sew together sleeves and Migoro (Body)

Migoro (Body) is sewn together on shoulders like this.

33

 

Open one side of Front Migoro.

4

 

Put a sleeve here. Match the shoulder line Katayama (line sewn between Front Migoro and Back Migoro) and the center of the sleeve.

3

Sleeve is shaped of straight but Migoro is shared of V. So be careful and put the two fabrics (sleeve and Migoro) so that N8 lines match.

 

Sew straight N8 line.

IMG_7348

 

This is what it looks like when the sleeves are opened. Little by little it looks kimono.

Paper pattern for kimono – N3 to N6



Detailed description about another page “Kimono’s paper pattern“.

Here is the previous step.

N3: Sew together the left shoulder

Put Left Front Migoro (Body) and Right Front Migoro (Body) on Back Migoro (Body).

N3 and N5 are written on the shoulders of Back Migoro. Put each Front Migoro so that it matches the numbers.

33

 

Sew together the shoulder as follows. Sew straight by sewing machine.

*  N5 is written in this picture but it’s wrong. I modified the actual file.

IMG_73052

N4: Seam allowance on the left shoulder

Fold N3 line after sewing there, so that only the fabric is visible.

IMG_7306

 

Zig-zag sew two fabrics together.

*  Process it by lock sewing machine if you have one.

IMG_7307

N5: Sew together on the right shoulder

Sew N5 line together, and fold only the paper like N3.

IMG_7309

N6: Seam allowance on the right shoulder

Process it by zig-zag sewing

IMG_7310

 

Back Migoro and Front Migoro are connected like this.

IMG_7311

 

You don’t use this for a while, so roll it and keep it. It’s good to keep it in a plastic bag or something so that marking pins don’t drop.

IMG_7312

 

Next is to process sleeves.
