The traditional Japanese
kimono has wide, half-way sewn sleeves. There is no seam between the top
and the skirt, and there are no pleats in the skirt. Pure cotton kimonos
lose length during washing. A fold in the waist areas allows for
lengthening. Kimonos are ankle length, but you can specify whatever
length you prefer.
Suggested fabric choices for the kimono are:
ceremonial use white cotton such as percale or high thread count
per inch white cotton.
everyday use grey fabric in 100% cotton such as grey chambray
