Pattern for a yukata (summer kimono). Make it up in cool, lightweight cotton for men or women or adapt it for a karate-style dogi top by cutting it short and narrowing the sleeves.

Pattern includes fabric sources, and directions for traditional embroidery and decoration.

If you wish to make a more formal version, lined and padded or adapted as the outer robe, see Make Your Own Japanese Clothes.
