There are several threads that come up when looking for +sewing +kimono and +pattern. Try, Common Questions about Costume Making by Godsavethequeen and "Must Have" (sewing, etc.) books for cosplay by alrasha to start with. I personal use Make your own Japanese Clothes by John Marshall. Obi can be a pain to make and put on. Some people make false Obi instead.
Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs had better get used to it.
