I think its a Kimono but my mom says its not, Im so Confused @_@ <--(is it a Kimono!!!?) So dose anyone know what Inu Yasha wears? And if you do tell me, dose McCalls (or another Pattern Company) make patterns of it? I know what I'm gunna do with the Pants. I just need help with the Shrit or Kimono, AGHhhh im so confused @_@!

I think it's some kinda ceremonial/kimono thingy. o_o Kinda like a Miko, you know. I tried to find some pictures for you, but I don't think the link tag works here, so here's the URLs:

Just thought it'd help you, since, you know, they're nice and still and you can study them. u_u If you need more or anything, just tell me. But sadly, all I can suggest for the material is just red fabric, sorry.

Stop direct linking there -.-;
Ive noticed that Inuyashas pants are all poufy like in Aladdin, get an adult pattern for his pants...you could probably get a kimono pattern for the top too.

It looks like a basic men's kimono top to me, but with some extra slits in the sleeves. Also, he tucks the top into this pants so you will probably want to make the kimono top shorter than normal.

Make sure you make the ends of the sleeves wide enough. His sleeve openigns are huge.

I'll have pics of mine up tomorrow sometime(www.orangeangel.com/cosplay) but what I do is make a basic kosode top one is white broad cloth (under kosode) and one in red twill. I only sew the bottom half of the sleeve on and hem the opening of the top. I make hakama pants, BUT I make the front and back legs the same width (approx. 20 inches) with only two pleats meeting in the middle, and then gather the bottom. You don't need a pattern to do this as old style japanese clothing items are just a series of rectangles. PM me if you want the directions, but I reccomend you have a some sewing experence becuase you'll need a little "sewing common sense" for this hope that helps!

I'd go with cotton, personally, 'cuz it's simple, easy to sew, and cheaper than your average. :D

It's also authentic to the time period.

seriously try EBAY. I saw about 5 InuYasha costumes up for auction. And the seller has a link to his "page" that you can order from. PRETTY damn good ones too. Custom made, not cheap out of hte store type stuff.

Thax guys for the tips :) Yeah I went to the store and looked through the books and got the shirt type and pants type patterns. It should look great! My friends sows so hopley it will work out :) Oh yeah I did go with cotton. I mean watching the series the clothing looks more thicker than cotton well for me it does but I didn't find anything that looks similar to that so I just went with cotton. It should look great :)

Cotton fabric comes in all weights from the thin broadcloth sold for quilting (which is too thin for kimono) to heavy denim, duck, and canvas. Weight and surface texture is more important than fiber content in most cases.
