Hello! Much as the title says I'm looking for a pattern to make a Yukata. Does anyone know where I can find one?
I'm looking to make the yukata Rikuo wears from Nurarhiyon no Mago. For those unfamiliar with the anime/manga please refer to the image bellow. I'm assuming it's a yukata and not a hakama because of the way the leggings are, yet I don't know what the "overcoat" is called. Thanks in advanced =)
I need to make this: http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a145/Tsukune/nura-rise-of-the-yokai-clan-costume-1.jpg

That's a kimono, not a yukata. You'd never wear a yukata with a haori (the jacket). Yukata are also not usually worn with an underkimono or separate collar. Yukata are the Japanese equivalent of wearing a Hawaiian shirt with shorts - very informal summer wear.

Regardless, kimono and yukata are made pretty much the same way except kimono can be lined, and yukata are always cotton.

That Folkwear pattern is good for the haori but make sure not to make the hapi-coat version; haori have longer sleeves. Folkwear also has a kimono/yukata pattern (http://www.folkwear.com/113.html) that is highly recommended and accurate.

Thank you very much for the information I was sure it was a yukata guess I need more practice =p I will definitely look into these ones as well!

If you don't want to spend money on a pattern, you can search for instructions / tutorials.

The patterns are basically just big rectangles, and you can easily draw them to the size you need. :)

The tutorials look really solid I just wish the measurements were in english >_<

You'll have to take the measurements yourself,so they'll fit everybody. ;) All the seams are 1cm. ;)

Length will depend on your body measurements. For width, traditionally kimono panels are about 14 inches wide, but you want to measure and see what's best for you. To get a general starting point, the full width of the finished garment should be from your left hip, all the way around your body and finishing on the right hip (so wrapping 1.5 times).

All yukata are kimono, but not all kimono are yukata. It's a squares and rectangles deal.

The best kimono/yukata tutorial I've found. (http://www-personal.umich.edu/~weyrbrat/Japan/yukata/index.html)

The jacket is called a haori, and is basically a shorter version of a kimono without the front extensions. You fold the extra front fabric into the collar to use as interlining (this will make sense once you've read the tutorial).

Hakama are the big baggy samurai pants. Rikuo doesn't wear them.

I mentioned before that I like the Folkwear Kimono pattern, and I'm not the only one. Costumecon 30 is using this for the One Pattern contest. Basically, everyone uses the same pattern and sees how origional they can get with it. Costumecon is in Phoenix next year so I am not going (I live in Pennsylvania, to far away) but I'm still drawing some ideas just to see if I can come up with something good.
