This book is about making hitoe kimono in the traditional handsewn way. It also has instructions on how to make a variety of kitsuke items (see contents below). About 3/4th of the book is instructions on how to make the items, while the last 1/4th is filled with sewing techniques, a Q & A and basic kitsuke.
The best thing about this book is that it comes with a DVD (1 hour 35 minutes) which takes you step by step, through measuring, cutting, marking and sewing a kimono. The downside to the DVD is that it doesn't cover the other items in the book (like the rain coat)
it only show you how to make a kimono.

I second the broke-ness, but it's something for the wishlist, even though I can't read Japanese... :oops:

Attack The only book i know of (that's detailed and in english) is the John Marshall one.

Yohmama Keep checking yesasia, when i brought mine in november, it was out of stock. However i checked again when i wrote this review and it was in stock. So i think it's a bit pot luck when yesasia will get any in.

I know it's not as cheap as Amazon.jp but you can always order it from Kinokuniya. They have it in at $31.50, and shipping to the lower 48 is $7. Pricey, but an option if you must have it.

I have this book and while it is expensive - I personally think it's worth it.

I LOVE the DVD. I do Japanese style sewing with my straight stitches - but dang! The girl demonstrating is faster than the speed of light! I was blown away!
