Misses 6-20 (Hapi & Haori); Men's 34-44 (Hapi).
Elegant and simple sewing patterns for two outer garments, the Haori and Hapi, as well as Tabi socks.
Our Haori pattern is a thigh-length lined jacket which is sized for women. It has a straight front opening and a finished neckband which extends to the hem. Deep elbow-length curved sleeves are open next to the body. The front and back are cut with no shoulder seam; there is a narrow side panel below the underarm opening.
The Hapi is a shopcoat traditionally worn by storekeepers, craftsmen, and firemen over western-style clothing. It is sized for both men and women. Simple rectangles form the body, sleeves, neckband, and shoulder reinforcement for this unlined, fingertip-length garment.
Simple rectangular shapes are great for inventive color and texture combinations. This pattern includes silk screen fabric painting techniques and designs. A pattern for the tabi, the traditional split-toe slipper socks, is included.
This pattern is available as a paper pattern and a PDF pattern. This is the PDF version (for the paper pattern, go here). After checkout, you will receive a link to a zip file with the pattern. It is best to download the file on a computer (rather than a device). This PDF pattern has files for sewing instructions, print at home version (total of 70 pages, with options to print pages for one garment at a time), copy shop version (for 36" and A0 paper, also with options to print one garment at a time), and authentic detailing (including folding and ties of the Haori and screen printing).
Suggested fabrics: For the Hapi, choose light to medium-weight soft or crisp cottons or blends; silks with body such as noil or shantung; linen; wool. For the Haori, choose light to medium-weight soft fabrics with drape such as silk, rayon, or blends. For the Tabi, choose medium-weight cotton or blends. Fabrics with nap, pile, or one-way design are not suitable for either jacket.
