But, some people say its easy as putting it together with bed sheets...so I'm kinda clueless at this point. I can't really sew, but I have a friend who can and will probably teach me.

Here's some pics:

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.
