Maiko Hikizuri Measurement Guide

This was a little something I originally put together for a friend. It's not quite a sewing diagram for a maiko hikizuri, but it provides very detailed measurements which you can use to create your own maiko hikizuri. These are the measurements I used to create my Harunohana hikizuri ( http://kurokami-kanzashi.deviantart.com ... -363332009 ) - it includes measurements for where to place the body extension in order to make a regular kimono into a hikizuri. All the measurements in this diagram are based off of those of the authentic maiko hikizuri in my collection. The drawing is not exactly to scale, but it is fairly close.

I apologize for the tiny text, but it was the only way to get it all to fit. If you wish to view the text more clearly, please follow the link to my flickr page, and use the download button to view the image at full size.

Thanks, Kikyoo! I'm happy you'll find it helpful. If the flickr page won't let you download the full size, try downloading it from here instead: http://kurokami-kanzashi.deviantart.com ... d=711e351e
