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:

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 !!

Wonderful Site just Full of Goodies ad Great Prices,
Most are only moderately used and not quite old !!


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
