How to a make kimono plus sized!


The majority of kimono created are sized to the Japanese market. By American standards their sizing is roughly 2 times smaller than our own. So an American small is roughly a Japanese large. AS a result it is a struggle for many American's to find a kimono that will accommodate them for traditional kitsuke. However, plus-sized people eager to wear kimono should not lose hope. It is possible to take a kimono and make it larger. Our method is simple: we locate a unlined kimono, and then check the seams. In many unlined kimono there is ample fabric in the seams. These seams can be undone, and the fabric stored there let out to increase the girth of the kimono. In the past we have seen as much as 12+ inches gained in girth by letting out the seams of a kimono. Below are a few photos that show one such kimono in stock that we estimate has around 10 inches in the seams. So don't give up hope if you are struggling to find a plus-sized kimono, instead locate a great unlined Japanese kimono and then let out the seams.
