Maiko Hikizuri Measurement Guide by Kurokami-Kanzashi Maiko Hikizuri Measurement Guide by Kurokami-Kanzashi
This was a little something I put together for a friend.  It's not quite a sewing tutorial 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 (kurokami-kanzashi.deviantart.c… ) - 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 hit the download button.  The image is nice and large, so you should be able to get a good look at the text once the image is downloaded.

I'm assuming this would work for Geiko hiki as well? With shorter sleeves of course.
