Make yourself Japanese boy clothes with our Shirabyoshi pattern!

No, this isn't an anime. Shirabyoshi, the famed temple dancers, routinely dressed as men when they went out, even going so far as to carry a man's fan and wear the appropriate sword.

Our pattern for the Shirabyoshi outfit includes full-size pattern pieces and easy-to-use, step-by-step instructions on how to construct Suikan Sugata (the outfit of a Shirabyoshi) in a period manner. Includes the suikan (robe), hitoe (top), nagahakama (long pants), kosode (undershirt), shitabakama (drawers), and tate eboshi (hat). Also included are extensive historical notes on the origin and appropriate wear of suikan, colour, embellishment, and fabric suggestions, how to make kikutoji (decorative pompons), appropriate hair styles, and directions on how to get dressed.

All you need is the shoes! 

Oh, yeah, and the sword. Swords are awesome.

Fits chests 34" to 54" and waists 28" to 50". 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.
