That's not a kimono. It doesn't really resemble any kind of traditional Japanese costume.

That style is Chinese, like ancient court ladies' attire. I wouldn't be able to tell you the specific historical period it's based on though, nor how much is historical and how much might be modern or fantasy styling. So, you could start by searching for information on historical Chinese costumes worn by wealthy women, nobles, and concubines.

Thank you! I did some research and found something simular to it called a chinese hanfu. I will keep looking and try to find a pattern.
