I really don't want to sound like I'm preaching but....;)

Does anyone actually LOOK for things on their own before posting something like this? "I really want to know about XXXXXXX. Does anyone have any ideas?!":o:(

I typed "kimono pattern" into google and the absolute first thing that popped up was this:

Along with 94,200 other links....

Here's a book at Amazon for you...

If you want to buy a real silk kimono, be ready to spend somewhere in the realm of 1000 to 10,000 american dollars. If you want a silk yukata or something similar, that's a different story.

Are you looking for a real Kimono, or just something to wear around?

Hey ebear215,

Here are 2 links I think you might want to check out ... :D
Both are Online Stores that deal with Vintage and Used Authentic Kimono and Kimono Fabrics !!

http://www.kimonoexport.com/
Wonderful Site just Full of Goodies ad Great Prices,
Most are only moderately used and not quite old !!

And

http://www.ichiroya.com/
Another Great Site, Lots of great finds, Kimono, Fabrics, Antiques, Lots Lots Lots!
They are a bit more pricey then the first , but they deal in mostly Vintage and Antique Kimono that are well worth the extra $ !!

Hope this Helped :D
