I'm guessing from the fact that you know the term "hikizuri" that you're pretty familiar with kimono in general and may know the basic rectangle-patterning way to sew one. If you don't, this is a good guide with links to other resources if you get stuck.
Well the only problem is the shape of her sleeves doesn't look quite traditional. Also I want the proper train at the bottom.
