Simplicity makes one, apparently, as does Butterick. Neither is authentic, but looks like one.

Searching 'kimono pattern' in google gave me these links:
http://www.japanesekimono.com/kimono_fabric.htm
http://www.geocities.com/kimono_hist...o_patterns.htm
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Troy/5187/kimono.html
http://www.round-earth.com/patterns.html
http://folkwear-birchstreet.com/asian.html

If you want more, just do the search again and use any link you like.

To make Inuyasha's, any pattern would require a little bit of modification. Just make a mock-up first, out of cheap fabric, so you can learn how the pattern goes together, and what you have to fix to make it look like how you want it to.

Good luck.

Edit: If you want the pants, search for 'hakama'. There have been many threads on this topic. Google should give you some patterns as well. Sarcasm has one up on her site (search 'den of sarcasm'). Normal hakama don't go tight at the ankles, though, so you'd have to modify them, too.

For all my costumes, I go to JoAnn's and look through all the pattern books until I find a pattern that resembles what I am trying to make. Any alterations can be easily made. For my Inuyasha costume, I used a kimono top pattern, and for the pants, I basically made them really poofy/baggy, with a pant pattern resembling "genie" pants. For the slits in the sleeves/waist, I just cut them out once I was done with both shirt and pants. The fabric I used doesn't fray, so it was pretty easy.

Joann's is a fabric store that also sells patterns. Other fabric stores include Fabricland, Bouclair, Michaels (maybe, it's more a crafter's place)... all you have to do is look in your local yellow pages, maybe under 'fabric' or 'sewing supplies' or something.

Also, read the threads about Inuyasha. Just search the forum (I believe in the upper right hand corner). You could also search 'hakama' (pants), 'kimono' (top) or anything else related to the show. There's been numerous threads about this, as it's a popular costume. You might also want to look in the props thread for information about how to make his tetsusaiga (sword) or necklace. And, wig forum for wig things, of course.

Yes, Fabricland carries Butteric, Vogue, Burda, Simplicity, Mccalls.... Butterick has a kimono pattern, and so does Simplicity. Flip through the pattern books next time you visit your Fabricland or ask one of the people who work there for assistance. That's what they are there for, after all! And bring in a picture, so they have a better idea what you are looking for.

You can pre-search some patterns on their websites: www.simplicity.com, www.mccall.com (vogue, butterick, mccall). Kimono style patterns are usually under the costumes section.

Just a note of caution - they might look like a kimono, but are not done the traditional way. They are good, though, for a beginner sewer and costumer.

folkwear also makes a pattern for hakama's too and they aren't that difficult to make. The instructions are fairly simple to follow(made my seung mina 3rd player from a folkwear pattern) and they are very accurate.

Just bring a reference picture for yourself and look at the patterns. Have you even taken any of the advice people here have given you?

You can always search google yourself to find pics of inuyasha or helpful pages on making his costume. I know there are some out there.
