Kimono help!

Hello!
I'm looking to cosplay Sode No Shirayuki from Bleach. I think the closest style Kimono she has is a hikizuri, but I can't find a pattern for a hikizuri! Anyone know where one is? or have any other suggestions?

It looks like she's wearing her collar close against her nape, or at any rate not in the super-low position geisha use. Therefore, the pattern modifications specific to hikizuri aren't something you even need to worry about. You can just make an extra-long standard kimono with VERY long sleeves and add a padded hem.

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.

I can't see the bottom of the sleeves, but from that image they look like normal furisode sleeves.

For the train, hikizuri are simply extra-long and usually have padding at the hem so that it flares out nicely when worn. The shape is identical to normal kimono, just longer.

Here's a dressing tutorial; just ignore the obi instructions as your obi will be different.
