I'm wanting to get a solid pink yukata with a red obi.
I know they sell them at the vendors who set up at different conventions.

Does anybody happen to know the names of them or thier websites??
If not, anyone know where I could buy one online in those colors??

It'd be a big help! thanks!

There are many vendors on Ebay that sell yukata, although finding a solid one is going to be hard. Because they're casual summer-wear yukata are usually patterned. It might be easier to just make one if you need plain pink.

Sarcasm-hime is right, It's going to be hard to find a solid pink one, near impossible actually. Are you sure it HAS to be solid? There are a lot of pretty pink ones out there that just have a little bit of pattern on them.

Thank you for the replies!

No, it does'nt have to be a solid pink.
Just something that isnt TOO over the top with floral designs or what not on it.

Since you wanted very little pattern, this is the one I would recommend:

Does anybody have instructions for making a men's yukata? Or does anybody know where to find a solid white one?

You won't find solid white kimono or yukata except for brides or dead people, so you'll have to make it. Fortunately yukata and unlined kimono are easy; the best pattern is at folkwear.com.

If you want to make your own men's Yukata, and you can read Japanese, the following link from eBay has a pattern for sale that should be able to give you a guide: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sewing-Patterns-Japanese-Summer-Yukata-Jinbe-/260805216310?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3D LVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5904741849761509645"]http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sewing-Patterns-Japanese-Summer-Yukata-Jinbe-/260805216310?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3D LVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5904741849761509645.

Again, the directions are in Japanese, but you can make men's and women's Yukata with your own fabric from this pattern if you want.

I have used the folkweak pattern to make my Bleech cosplay and have found it easy to work with.
