This is meant to be a recreation of a hitatare kamishimo from Japan's "Momoyama" historical period, with all the fabric painting. It's similar to "Warrior general in kataginu and hakama" in the Japanese Costume Museum in Kyoto.

The fabric is a heavy hemp/linen blend from "96 District Fabrics".

I had enough extra fabric to make a kataginu as well, for those warmer or less formal days.
