Buy the world's only historically accurate uchigi and uwagi pattern!
Our easy-to-use patterns help you make hitoe, uchigi and uwagi: the underrobe, layers and top robe worn by women in informal and semi-formal occasions in Japan's Heian Period (894-1172). One unlined uchigi can be worn between the hitoe and uwagi casually, or five or more colour-matched, lined uchigi can be worn as the semi-formal outfit.
Includes the long underrobe (hitoe), layered robes (uchigi) and overrobe (uwagi) as well as suggestions for appropriate colour combinations and layering techniques.
The proper underwear for these robes are available in RH409 – Heian Japanese Lady's Underthings. To make this a formal court outfit, you'll also need RH411 – Heian Japanese Lady's Formal Robes.
Fits busts 30.5" to 48". All sizes in one envelope.
Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
