Measure yourself for kimono

There are few important measurements you need for making kimono.

The most important I'll always need (before even planning the design placement on the fabric) are:

  • yuki - from the center of the kimono to the end of the sleeve.

Measure the length from the center of your neck (the neck bone) to the wrist bone.

  • mitake - the length ot the kimono (from the shoulder top to the hem)

For women - your height

For men - from the base of your neck to your heel

  • hips circumference

Measure the circumference of your hips. Make sure you measure over the largest part of your buttocks - it's important to get the kimono width correctly.
