This post is titled:

Suoh Sugata

I had the day off from work today, so I finished up this fancy new Japanese outfit.

Suoh Sugata

It's definitely upper-class, though technically not very formal. It's a suoh sugata, which comprises a suoh hitatare (the "jacket" part") and suoh no hakama (the "pants" part). You can consider it a leisure suit, if your day job is leading a medieval Japanese battalion.

This took me about three weeks of work. It's all fully lined; this was only the third lined garment I've made and the first pair of lined hakama I've made. The brocade for the shell was on sale for 40% off!
