Description

An element of my drama coursework was designing costumes and props for a play script. I decided to take it one step further and actually make my costume because, why not? The script was set in Japan so I made a mini kimono to fit one of those wooden dolls they use to sketch in art. I used a vintage dressing gown pattern Style 1772 which was released in 1976. This was scaled down to about a quarter of its size. I just re-drew the shapes of the pattern pieces as a smaller size which worked because it’s such a loose garment. The obi was just made from a rectangle and I finished by binding the edges with a white contrast fabric.
