Well its not to hard of the costume so dont worry! You can do it!

For the top I do love the folkwear pattern you can get for kimono's but if you arnt willing to dish out the money there are easier ones you can get at any fabric store.

a pattern like this or anyone like it from Simplicity, McCalls or Butterick will work fine but you will have to alter the sleeve. This is how tou alter the pattern I did this for Kikyo so I dont think you will want it as long. 14" or less would do. ... 01_1_b.jpg ... sleeve.jpg



And thats the pattern to make the traditional Hakama pants. Theres also a pattern on the net, I have used both and I like this one much more.

Hehe I remember that pattern for when I made my Shinigami yoruichi hakama. It's very good and worked well for me. It took a lot of trials and errors though...but that's because I'm a terrible seamstress. =(
