The good people of Lastwear have been kind enough to make the patterns of their hakama available to the general public. The patterns were originally made available on their Deviant Art page, but I don't really know if hotlinking is allowed and such, so I hosted the pics on my photobucket account. If you ever get to make one, please do contact the Lastwear people to thank them for the patterns..

Quote
We've had several requests for patterns for our Hakama recently.
As we don't have the time or resources to print patterns for sale we're making our Sequence of construction guide available here.
Please bear in mind that this was written for use by factories and assumes a certain knowledge of production techniques.

If you go ahead and make a pair please let people who ask know where you got the design from.

If you make Hakama for sale from this pattern please make sure the person buying them know that you are selling a Hakama made from a Lastwear design but that it is not a Lastwear Hakama.

Lastly we'd love to get feedback from you if you make one especially if you modify the pattern. If you think you've come up with an improvement we'd love to know!

Thanks, and we hope you enjoy the guide.

Make it more interesting. Steampunk Kinomono/Hakama examples!

A hakama is a high pleated skirt or split skirt like garment worn over a kimono.  Basically the Hakama is the equivalent of formal trousers for men (originally only worn by men, and is traditionally worn by practitioners of martial arts (Kyudo, Kendo, etc), but was later adopted by women for graduation ceremonies,  and also as part of standard uniform for miko female priestess helpers).  The hakama has 7 deep pleats, two in the back and 5 in front ( 3 to the right and 2 too the left - asymetrical) which are meant to symbolise the seven virtues of Bushido.

I know of one local Steampunk who has worn hakama as part of their Steampunk persona

I'm SO glad this was revived! I had completely forgotten about it.
I wear my hakama for many events but, they're vintage, so I'm going to be making quite a few pair (Pair? yes I think it's pair.) of new ones once the missing instructions are posted. ^_^

Here!  I found this video of my local steampunk friends Bryant and Stephanie Warren, who own an Asian-Steampunk oriented business (conventions web), and who like to give lectures at Anime and other Steampunk conventions, as they specialize in Japanese and Asian culture.  Haven't seen them here at BG, on account they have a new "mini me" at home  Grin

Here's so info on basic Japanese Kimonos for those who wnat to know; From the Multicultural Steampunk presentation at Ushicon 7 (2012):
They mostly talk about the kimono and not really the hakama, but at the beginning of the video Bryant is seen unpacking a grey hakama, and (it's hard to see but) he's wearing a black hakama.  . WARNING: 1 hour video.

Hear is a very basic pattern used by the local taiko group.

The webpage also has an article on making taiko drums from barrels if your interested.

Sewing is not one of my strengths for hakama I just pick them up at a shop called tger toggs at Pennsic.

That's pretty good, actually!

A little addition: my hakama has a little plastic tab at the back, which makes it a little easier to tie properly. It also keeps the rear from exposing your butt if the knot accidentally becomes undone.. Tongue

I started one a while back, did a paper mockup to establish the shape and then didn't continue. One stumbling block was the pleats. I think I have figured out how they work but I didn't know how they could be made permanent. The thought of having to reestablish them after every wash is daunting!
