New Doll Patterns Page

Though I intended to put more personal doll related material in another forum, I’ve decided to add a page for translated doll patterns anyways.  It’s accessible though the pages link on the left, or here.

The first translation is a pattern for making dolls’ yukata.  It’s finally summer in Japan, and even the novice will dawn a light cotton kimono for festivals and fireworks events.  In the spirit of being festive, here’s the start of a long and very technical pattern detailing the construction of unlined kimono, lined kimono, juban undergarments for kimono, and obi.
