Question Soah Kimono Dress

I'm planning to do Soah from Bride of the Water God but I have no idea how to make the bottom part of her dress. Here is a reference. http://images5.fanpop.com/image/phot...49-608-776.jpg

I think it is ultimately going to look similar to this http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...bi-d4ndu62.jpg

With a few alterations and different colors of course. Do you have any suggestions of how I can make a kimono with the full skirt? Any patterns would also be appreciated!

Its along the lines of a hanfu, not a kimono, I believe. Though korean clothing terms still illude me mostly, so im suggesting a chinese style.

How you do this is pretty simple. Instead of cutting all panels straight, you need to angle them out from the waist down like so / \

The wider the bottom of the triangle, the wider the bottom of your dress will be in the end.

You could also do it in a kinda Hanbok style, where the top and skirt are separate and the seam hidden by the waist sash.
Here isskirt patterns if you go the two piece route:

Chinese; hanfu
Korean; hanbok
Japanese; kimono

However, though it is Korean, the style is much older and resembles more of a Chinese hanfu so finding chinese hanfu patterns online would be better to use rather than hanbok patterns.
