Excellent detailed illustrations - photos, drawings, diagrams. Loaded with information on the history, how to make, how to wear kimono and other traditional Japanese clothing items. Totally nerd-worthy amount of information! ( )

Valuable resource An excellent book for someone with previous sewing experience, especially hand sewing. (You don't need a machine to make these garments, in fact, it's better to do it by hand.) I very much appreciated the background on Japanese sewing, however, the stitches are not as clearly illustrated as they could be, and would probably be very difficult to understand for a beginning sewer. As for the other illustrations, arm yourself with patience and re-read the explanations several times through. Overall I'm happy with this book after looking everywhere for traditional Japanese kimono patterns. I was able to successfully complete a kurotomesode (formal black kimono) thanks to it. ( )
