To follow up on the suikan, I made a kariginu A kariginu is basically the same shape as a suikan, though it is more often lined and made of fancier fabric.

Red Brocade Kariginu

The fabric is polyester brocade (not historically accurate), but the shape is very accurate, matching several examples. It was a lot of sewing, but it should be fancy enough to attend the coronation event next month.
