Description

I was able to get 2 panels of this scene, so decided to make something for myself and something for the shop, so it is OOAK. This is a knee-length Yukata robe with a long, fully pleated Obi for traditional ties.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colours used as well as the scene on the back. Would you happen to have the pattern for this still? Also does your shop have a site?

      Hi and Thank you! I didn’t use a pattern, but made it up from measurements. It is pretty easy to do since these types of garments are made from large squares and rectangles and if I get time I might do a tutorial (if it hasn’t already been done here). The Yukata has been sold in my shop, but if you’re curious anyway, I’m on Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HollyStorm

    oh I love the scene on the back! What a shame there are not more fabrics like that one out there.

    This is really lovely, especially the obi! I’ve always wanted to make a yukata.

      Thanks! Speaking of the measurements, it is really easy to make. The most time-consuming parts were the collar/facings, which are like large strips of double-fold bias tape and take forever to make and sew on. I even made this more difficult by deciding that I wanted to enclose the bottom edge instead of hemming and that I wanted the Obi to be made of 3 different fabrics and pleated. It turned out nicely though, so I guess it was worth the time!
