This pattern is very easy to follow and sew...all straight seams. I did have a bit of an issue when I cut the nicks for the sleeves ( my fault I cut at the wrong place so be careful ). But it still went together nicely and looks stunning on my doll. I used quilting cotton in an all over pale green print. I had a ribbon the correct width and did not make the obi. I do plan to do so, and make the Gita as well. I want to get a lovely silk brocade to make a dress kimono next!
